[X3D-Public] starting with x3dom: no nodes displayed

Hi Don!

There should be no x3d content be transferred to your client. The 
content is embedded in a html page, with a javascript displaying it on 
an embedded canvas. So, at least that is my understanding, my webserver 
does not need to know anything about x3d mimetypes.

However, you would need to have webgl enabled in your Firefox browser. 
Internet Explorer does not support webgl, and thus x3dom neither afaik. 
There seams to be some flash-based workaround for IE, but I have no idea 
how to make use of it.

Cheers, Lars.
