I know 3D has been discussed but not much more. For 3D in XML, go to the Web3D consortium and look at the X3D project. This is VRML (real time 3D) and will provide an XML encoding. Several vendors have already implemented prototype players for you to work with complete with API. The set of geometric elements ranges from indexed face sets, primitives, and NURBS. I'd suggest some experiments with Blaxxun3D. X3D drafts are being completed at this time. There are still hiccups in the scene graph particularly with the mapping of nodes and fields to elements and attributes. Since X3D must be extensible internally, PROTOs are still being debated. That said, X3D will be in workable shape by Siggraph. If you have an interest in 3D in XML, I suggest you join the x3d-contributors@w... list and dive right in. There is also a good open source group working here, collboration with the MPEG4 community, and so forth. Len Bullard xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
