RE: [xml-dev] When parsing speed matters (was Re: [xml-dev]NoXML Binaries? Buy Hardware)

Thanks Len,

No you're talking ;-) Excellent. Makes sense.
A 2D aspect of X3D to use with the likes of the
existing things now the domain of browsers
just as black and white is still possible within
a technology of colour.

This would be very welcome I think.

Many thanks

Stephen Green

My oversight:  for text-intensive applications, use the 2D layer.  Even
then, you will want to think differently.  This is a world metaphor, not a
page metaphor.  One doesn't scroll.  One roams.

In 2D, you find events.  In 3D, events find you.

As a general case, though, this is apples and oranges as far as large chunks
of text go.  Text is by its nature, flat 2D even though you can make
extruded 3D text.   3D is usually unwieldy for text not because you can't do
it, but because one seldom wants to look at the back of a line of text.
