[Conference paper reporting a study where web pages were evaluated by several participants. Participants were given certain tasks to perform on the web sites, Participants then graded the web sites according to cultural criteria. Researchers used Hofstede's masculinity cultural dimension to categorize the web sites after they were graded by participants.
