Subject: "Reading" web pages

hello all:

given the escalating popularity of the web -- and the notoriously *uneven*
quality of information available in cyberspace, wouldn't it be helpful to
articulate some explicit suggestions or principles for critically
evaluating and using web-based information? (for my purposes i'm thinking
specifically about information by or about religious groups that students
are likely to find and use from the web.)

do some of you provide students with suggestions on how critically to
"read" the web? i'd love to hear what others have developed formally or
