I can't classify it as anything else as a web page. Its unique material
only available on the web.

Ok, I might get the Misc category to produce something close to acceptable
but it would be nice if Lout could help me follow for example the
recommendations in (not that its in my field but should be generally

Web Extension  to American  Psychological  Association  Style (WEAPAS)
Proposed standard for referencing  online documents  in scientific  

an example of a thing that is hard with current types is a "visited
