In the end, draft one paragraph that describes the rhetorical situation, one or two that describe the page, and a final one that characterizes the page in general. You'll need to characterize the visual sense of the page overall, the various kinds and uses of text on the page, the images on the page, the relationship between the text and images. You will need to follow links to see what's on the other end, but you don't need to describe those pages.
