Chimera and VMD have their own unique features for Visualization. WebGL
of Chimera is still actively under development.
I didn't know X3D model in VMD before and I just generated one.
I try to open it with my Browser under Linux, however:
in Chrome it only show the source code in page
in Firefox, it try to download the file....
Do you have any idea how to display it in webpage correctly? I just
Google it and there are not so many document about it.
Thanks a lot
