Assuming a 'Web Page' == rendered (X)HTML resource to most. You can 
differentiate by equating a 'Web Page' to blank paper while a 'Web 
Sheet' is a like graph paper. Then triples or quads simply reflect 
number of cells. You can even go further by connecting to other sheets 
via cells that hold de-referencable URI based values etc..
