Not sure which bit of OpenGL is on the web.  OpenGL is a local machine API
which uses local hardware to render to a local screen.  You could store a
scene on the web and have a local scene viewer render it using OpenGL.
There are a few around. CosmoPlayer from SGI did this.  Some VRML viewers
can do this.

you can use openGL in a java applet, then put it on the web, or use VC, VB,
make an ActiveX with openGL in it, or you can use C++ and delphi, make
active form with openGL in it, or just simple make activeX as what you do in
VC.

You'll find some excellent work by the late Jan Horn at this site ...

There's an ActiveX demo here.
