Chapter 4. VRML OVERVIEW > Essential VRML Jargon

Essential VRML Jargon

Like most programming languages, VRML is rife with unique terms, concepts, and principles. Fortunately, you don't actually need to program in VRML in order to weave existing VRML content into your own Web site; you need only to skim the surface from the perspective of a Web developer rather than dive deeply into it as a programmer would.

Most of the time, of course, simply using existing VRML content as is isn't enough. You'll want to customize premade VRML objects and scenes to suit your tastes and needs, rather than settle for what you're handed, buy, or get free on the Internet. You can use visual authoring tools or learn the basics of the programming language, both of which are described in the chapters that follow. In either case, you'll need to know the basic terminology and principles of VRML, which is what this section and the next chapter are all about.
