Roman Czyborra ( working to get the various
compression types registered. See:

for more details and the discussion threads.

Thus, the compressed VRML stream would look like this:

In HTTP I'd use:

Content-Encoding: x-gzip
Content-Type: x-world/x-vrml
Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary

For SMTP my registration shall allow to send:

Content-Type: application/gzipped; object=x-world/x-vmrl
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64

And NNTP would probably want this in message/partial.

Thus, the unzipper would unzip and then the appropriate
viewer would be called for the various content types. He has
types for gzip, tar, etc.
