|Web Page||You have created this project in the form of a Web page, but you have many errors on your page. Or you have pages in your site that should be Web pages but are not.||You have created this project in the form of a Web page (even if you would hand it out to students on paper) that includes correct HTML tags (although it is not required that you use HTML to create the page). All pages are created in the form of a Web page (except possibly a couple of pages where a Web page doesn't make as much sense as a Word or other type of file). Hint: don't leave something as a Word document out of laziness, but don't force something to be a Web page when it naturally should be some other type of document.||(none)
