 +====== Plain text 3d? ======
 +
 +Yep.
 +
 +Here are some simple examples to warm you up for the
 +more complex pages to come.
 +
 +Look at the screen (or page if this has been printed
 +out) and see if you can get the 2 X's below to look
 +like like 3 X's.
 +
 +This is the basic skill needed for viewing the images.
 +
 +When you do this you are fooling you brain into
 +thinking the image is further away than it realy is.
 +Once you can do that we can play with the spacing
 +between the letter and your brain will interpret that
 +as distance
 +
 +You may need to play with the font size (smaller may be
 +better) and your distance from the page or screen to
 +get the effect to work.  Also be sure that you are
 +level with the image.
 +
 +Ok, give it a try with the simple images below
 +
 +  - try to see three X's and columns of text.
 +
 +                   ​X ​           X
 +            :            :            :
 +            :   This is  :   This is  :
 +            :   a test.  :   a test.  :
 +            :   Its all  :   Its all  :

 +            :   ​plane. ​  : ​  ​plane. ​  :
 +
 +  - ok, now try one with a little depth.
 +
 +                   ​X ​           X
 +            :            :            :

 +            : Cool  huh? :  Cool huh? :
 +            :            :            :
 +
 +  - and now for the last example.
 +
 +                   ​X ​           X
 +            :            :            :
