   This document describes a Uniform Resource Name (URN) namespace for
   the Web3D Consortium (Web3D) for naming persistent resources such as
   technical documents and specifications, Virtual Reality Modeling
   Language (VRML) and Extensible 3D (X3D) files and resources,
   Extensible Markup Language (XML) Document Type Definitions (DTDs),
   XML Schemas, namespaces, style sheets, media assets, and other
   resources produced or managed by Web3D.

1. Introduction

   Web3D is a non-profit organization with a mandate to develop and
   promote open standards to enable 3D for the Internet, Web and
   broadcast applications.  Web3D is responsible for developing,
   advancing, and maintaining the VRML97 ISO/IEC International Standard
   (ISO/IEC 14772-1:1997), X3D (the forthcoming official successor to
   VRML) and related technologies.

   Web3D maintains and extends its standardization activities through
   the coordinated efforts of dedicated Working Groups, Task Groups, and
   professional Liaisons to related standards bodies such as ISO, W3C,
   and MPEG.  See http://web3d.org/ for details.

   Web3D would like to assign unique, permanent, location-independent
   names based on URNs for some resources it produces or manages.

   This namespace specification is for a formal namespace.
