.cgi vs .wrl
The VRML maps are generated on the fly by a CGI script.
Thus, the URL that you get ends with the extension '.cgi' rather
than '.wrl'. The output of the CGI script is marked with
'Content-type: x-world/x-vrml', which is the standard HTTP
method for identifying a VRML file.
Based on some of the email I've received, it seems that some
web browsers may not be speaking HTTP correctly; they only look
at the '.cgi' extension of the URL, and don't realize that
the file is in fact VRML. The only suggestions I can give for
this problem are to look for a way to configure your browser
correctly, or to save the map as a local file, give it a
'.wrl' extension, and then run your VRML viewer on that file.
