This paper describes a number of techniques using jQuery to take advantage of the 3D descriptive markup implemented by X3DOM. X3DOM is a project of the Web3D Consortium, primarily being implemented by staff at Fraunhoffer IGD to provide 3D descriptive markup. Using this markup embeds 3D directly into HTML such that a web browser can render 3D scenes without resorting to plug-ins. Given 3D descriptive markup this paper demonstrates a number of techniques that take advantage of having the 3D geometry and scene graph represented directly in a web browser. Placing a 3D scene graph into the browsers DOM (Document Object Model) offers the opportunity to leverage frameworks such as jQuery in powerful ways.
