Vector Markup Language (VML) is a Microsoft-proprietary 2-D (2 not 3)
vector-graphics system that uses XML syntax.  It will soon be replaced
by SVG, being developed by a group at the W3C (including Microsoft).
VML is pretty cool and SVG is massively cool.

VRML is Virtual Reality Modeling Language, now an ISO standard, a
very large & comprehensive VR language.  It uses a textual but non-XML
encoding format.  VRML has never taken off in the marketplace, opinions
differ as to why.

The VRML folk are working on a recasting of the language into a 
new version with among other things an XML syntax, go check out 
web3d.org. -Tim
