No, it is not going to take over the web, but it will eventually be a 
lartge part of it. Starting about Aug 4 when the final spec for VRML 2.0 
is released. 
By the way, anybody using a 286 does not matter. Those people are 
not even on the web. Unless they are using lynx, in which case they 
don't even know about colors in html, let alone VRML so why worry about
