Virtual Reality Markup Language (commonly abbreviated VRML) is, as the name suggests, a language for describing 3-dimensional objects on a computer screen, which is designed to be easily displayed within a standard web browser to achieve a Virtual Reality experience. The main benefit of VRML being computable and displayable from within a browser is that - aside from being viewable by all devices that can run a web browser - VRML can also be tightly coupled to the DOM and as such, can make use of CSS, JavaScript and DHTML effects just like a regular web page. Through this powerful combination of web languages, extremely robust and rich interactions become a reality.
