>From the feedback that I got from Keith Moore and based on
Jan's comments, I'll change the recommendations as stated in the
Viewer Test Page (
to x-world/x-{vrml,iv,oogl}.

For the chemistry type, based on Henry Rzepa's comments we'll
leave them as chemical/x-{pdb,etc.} for now and change to
chemical/{pdb,etc.} once the chemical RFC is approved.

Hope this doesn't cause too much confusion. Seems like
Mosaic and Netscape should be smart enough to look for the
non 'x-' kinds if they can't find the 'x-' kinds (maybe they
do and I just don't know it???). That would make the change over
