Make a file like this and get VRweb from: http://www.iicm.edu/vrweb
for almost any machine Unix, PC etc

#VRML V1.0 ascii
Separator   {                               #start object
Material    { diffuseColor 1 0 0            #red body              
              specularColor 1 1 1           #white hilights              
              shininess 0.1      }          #shiny 
Sphere      { radius 1.5 }                  #draw sphere
Translation { translation 2 0 0  }          #translate
Material    { diffuseColor 0 1 0 }          #green body              
Sphere      { radius 2.5 }                  #draw sphere
            }                               #finish object
