Virtual environments with avatars can be used in a variety of application areas such as engineering, science, education and entertainment. This paper reports an effective way to control an avatar defined in VRML according to the international ISO/IEC Humanoid Standard. The control system has a hierarchical structure and is built in three levels: joint control, basic behaviors and script language.
