This is a first draft for private use only. It is neither valid html nor utf8 friendly. In fact I mangled the character sets when I moved the database to this server. WebGL Design[edit] Like OpenGL ES 2.0, WebGL does not have the fixed-function APIs introduced in OpenGL 1.0 and deprecated in OpenGL 3.0. This functionality can instead be provided by the user in the JavaScript code space. Shaders in WebGL are expressed directly in GLSL.
