If you can live with having diagonal lines in each mesh box, its
pretty easy.  If you run 'java Test12' in visad/examples, you'll
see a 2-D surface.  If you modify to add a line:

    GraphicsModeControl mode = dpys[0].getGraphicsModeControl();
    mode.setPolygonMode(DisplayImplJ3D.POLYGON_LINE); // ADD THIS LINE

Then compile (javac -g, then run 'java Test12' you'll
see the surface as a mesh.

If you want more control over the mesh appearence, copy the ideas
in the main() method of visad/, lines 1013 - 1125.
