The semantics of the X3D ISO standard describe an abstract functional behavior of time-based, interactive 3D, multimedia information. It is independent of any specific software or hardware setup. However, X3D clients and applications today are mainly built for desktop systems running a web-browser. During the last years we have build a VR environment which utilizes the VRML- and X3DISO standards as a basis for an application programming and description language. In this paper we discuss some of our results and experiences. We present necessary extensions to the ISO standard, e.g. to support different interaction and navigation tasks, and discuss how existing parts can be interpreted differently in a VR environment.
