VRML
Taken from the Web 3D Consortium's FAQ.

"VRML is an acronym for "Virtual Reality Modeling Language". It is the International Standard (ISO/IEC 14772) file format for describing interactive 3D multimedia on the Internet. The first release of the VRML 1.0 specification was created by Silicon Graphics, Inc. and based on the Open Inventor file format. The second release of VRML added significantly more interactive capabilities. It was primarily designed by the Silicon Graphics VRML team with contributions from Sony Research, Mitra, and many others. VRML 2.0 was reviewed by the VRML moderated email discussion group (www-vrml@vrml.org) and later adopted and endorsed by many companies and individuals. In December 1997, VRML97 replaced VRML 2.0 and was formally released as International Standard ISO/IEC 14772."
