I think VRLM is going to take over the web, but it will be several 
years before that happens mainly because of machine speed...
We're not talking about converting a bunch of 286 DOS users - 
from my understanding Pentium machines are barely fast enough 
to truely use VRML.  There is another advantage that no one has mentioned -
file size.  Although I am not overly familiar with VRLM, the files should be
considerably smaller than the larger images on some pages.  Since its
3-D and faster to download, it should be seen as an imporvement 
(although it will eat processor time...).  Well, that's my $.02...
