Oh my good, why don't you print prospects and give them out with
3-D-glasses.. best viewed with our 3-D-glasses?

That would be the right thing for most of the Web-page-creators. They
use java, what can be viewed by about 3 of 20 Browsers, they create Tags
for a single Browser... that's stupid, WWW was created to offer
Informations to everyone in this world and not only to a couple of people
who have one specific OS or one specific browser :( 

Do that in your Intranet, where everyone can have the same Browser, but
not in the InTERnet - that's not the thing it is created for.
