Thank you Shelly.  We hope to gain a better understanding of how X3D can
best support and and align with HTML5.  It is always good to discuss what
is in and what is out of the HTML5 draft recommendation.

Of interest is that Johannes now has some interesting demos that allow
direct X3D integration within an HTML page, online at http://x3DOM.org
These are implemented in Javascript and WebGL, and so do not require a
plugin.  So far testing is successful on Firefox and WebKit nightly builds.

all the best, Don
