You must go through all children nodes.
I'm working on a Vrml chart generator and I make a call to
The string is generated by Java objects that have the Vrml hierachical
Every objects knows how much nodes it generates.
Then the top java object gets the top level node and it knows which
child object gets which node and so on.

Try it.
