The Foreword provides background on the standards process for X3D encodings. The Introduction describes the purpose, design criteria, and characteristics of X3D encodings. The following clauses define this part of ISO/IEC 19776:

  1. Scope defines the problem area that the Classic VRML encoding of X3D addresses.
  2. Normative references lists the normative standards referenced in this part of ISO/IEC 19776.
  3. Definitions contains the glossary of terminology used in this part of ISO/IEC 19776.
  4. Concepts describes various fundamentals of the Classic VRML encoding of X3D.
  5. Encoding of fields and events specifies the Classic VRML encoding of data types used by X3D nodes.
  6. Encoding of nodes specifies the Classic VRML encoding of X3D nodes.
  7. Conformance describes the conformance requirements for implementations of the Classic VRML encoding.

There are several annexes included in the specification:

  1. Grammar definition presents the grammar for the X3D Classic VRML file format.
  2. Examples includes a variety of Classic VRML encoded example files.
Bibliography lists references which may have more information.
