If it runs on the terminal but not in a browser ON THE SAME MACHINE,  
the problem might be that Java3D wasn't installed in a global fashion  
on the machine.  This sounds like the issue as you stated she needs  
paths set up to find the libraries -- if Java3D was installed  
properly, Java should find it automatically, no need for library  
paths or classpaths.

If the issue is that Java3D's not running on a different machine,  
there's another point there: Java3D isn't just jar files you can  
include with your application -- it's also low-level C libraries that  
are operating-system dependent.  If the system that's running the web  
browser doesn't have those libraries, Java3D won't run no matter  
what.  And if you created a Java WebStart application or something,  
it'd still only be able to run on a specific operating system if it  
included the C libraries for that system.
