Website
The sum total of all web pages, subsites, and content objects that exist at a web address such as http://school.district.org
Websites are a collection of things, not a single page (It is possible to have a one page website, but that isn't very useful!).  
Subsite
A container that holds at least one web page, but that can additionally hold any numbef of web pages, content objects and sub containers
Subsites can be shared to other users so that they may publish content to the web.  Web pages themselves cannot be shared, except that their parent container has been shared first.
Web Page
A single web page that contains either a single document, or a Mashup of various documents and content objects

Mashup Panel
