these discussions of Lisp and Forth disturb me a little bit. We want everyday
people to be able to create VRML documents. You can't expect an accountant
from Des Moines to learn lisp just for this?

The language problem is actually a very hard problem to solve. Look at
Director, for example. It was created for artists and designers to use, but if
most of them employ a programmer of some sort to do the really hard scripting

We need a really simple, english-like scripting language, in my opinion, if we
want real people to write scripts.
