Thanks. But I tried what you said, but the object still rotates around 
the origin of world.

Could you try out the following and see what happen?
	1. copy sphere.off to sphere1.off
	2. modified the transform in  sphere1.off 
	   so that the sphere centers away from the world origin;
	   for ex: change T[3][0] of transform matrix to 10;

	3. lauched geomview with (normalization World none)
	4. load in sphere1.off 
	5  select sphere1.off as ui-target and center
	6. rotate it.

Supposedly, it should rotates around its own axises, however, that is not 
what I saw. Could you please check it? Maybe I did something wrong.

Thanks a lot for your help. I am working on a tight schedule on this, 
your early response is greatly appreciated.
