Types of Web Pages in SharePoint 2010
Although SharePoint 2010 gives you a lot of helpful tools to work with content, the ability to communicate effectively with your team, starting with a customizable home page, pulls everything together. Using web pages and Web Parts is how you arrange and present information in a collaboration site. Team sites use wiki pages to make it easy for everyone on your team to share information.
