comment How can I use WebGL to create a tile-based multi-layer scrolling platform game?
@SeanMiddleditch, thanks for the response. I will certainly consider Canvas in the future. I am merely doing experimental, personal work for some free games (which I'm putting online at games.nick-hill.com, which currently contains some Silverlight experiements).

@Sean, may I ask what you would choose if you could go back in time and do it all again?

Hey Sean, I must respectfully disagree that 2D canvas is a better fit for my needs. The performance of the 2D canvas is rather abysmal compared to what WebGL can offer. WebGL is an emerging technology and seems to have been well adopted by most web browsers (although notably not IE as far as I am aware).

comment Can the solar system be accurately represented in 3d space using doubles (or longs)?
This answer is good because it maps more easily into 3d floating point space used by the likes of OpenGL and DirectX, and has good references. Therefore, I have marked it as the answer :)
