Hmmm, how do we pronounce this?

- "X space-character 3D"
- "X hyphen 3D"
- "X dash 3D"


The links you sent are interesting Cecile.  Curiously they provide rather obscure single-very-long-line javascript, not very readable or repeatable.

Since the X3D standard provides a publishing format for 3D on the Web, and since archival use and cultural heritage are part of our capabilities space, this looks to be a great project.  Something that 3D programs are not very good at is composition, especially adding multiple objects together that are produced by multiple authors at different times.

Model composition and interaction is something that X3D excels at.  It will be interesting to see whether it is much work to get their models can be compatibly archived and available in X3D.

all the best, Don
