VRML is a proposed design based on the Silicon Graphics Open Inventor ASCII
file format. Originally called the Inventor VRML, this format has evolved
into what is now the VRML format.

VRML is also called a "Markup Language" for reasons that it is used in a
fashion similar to HTML (HyperText Markup Language), but for rendering 3D
graphics rather than text. VRML, however, is in no way derived from HTML.

The current VRML specification may be obtained from:
