The interfacial structural and fluctuation effects occurring at continuous filling transitions in three dimensional wedge geometries were investigated. The implications of classical wedge covariance for the structure of interfacial models of short-ranged filling and wetting are also discussed. The critical exponents which characterize the fluctuation-dominated regime were related to the values of the standard wandering exponent for planar interfaces in two dimensional and three dimensional. The numerical studies of mean-field filling within a Landau theory show that classical covariance is not limited to the shallow wedge limit.
