Since Chicago and MLA style (often used in the US) both treat pages on
websites similar to articles within journals or chapters within books in
terms of formatting, then by analogy the page title would have <title
level="a">. But for the title of the site, it's certainly unclear
whether to use <title level="j"> or <title level="m">. Here are
arguments for each:
<title level="j">: This includes "any serial [. . .] publication".
Anglo-American cataloging practice treats websites like serial
publications, both of which fall under the term "continuing resources"
(that is, resources which are continually updated).
<title level="m">: Equating a website to a serial publication is
counterintuitive to many people, and since the TEI's bibliographic model
doesn't follow that of cataloging rules exactly anyway, you might as
well encode in a way that's more intuitive to most people -- in a way
that's akin to a stand-alone monograph.
That said, since Connie admitted in a later message that she is "only
using <title> in our rather unstructured <bibl>s to gather statistics
about the frequency with which our source text cites certain journals
and books, and to format our HTML output", then she'll want to think
about whether she wants websites to fall in with journals or books in
her stats. Perhaps, if she omits @level entirely for websites, she can
construct a third category in her stats (for websites).
