How do I tell the ASP.NET Silverlight Application Type?

In Visual Studio 2010, whenever you create a new Silverlight application, you have a few choices to make. If you click on the check box to "Host the Silverlight application in a new Web Site", you can either create the new web project as a "ASP.NET Web Application Project" or you can create it as an "ASP.NET Web Site".

Now, there is some discussion on the internet as to which project type is best suited for which purpose. But this is not what I am asking here. I have inherited a project and I want to know what time I have been given. What sort of tell-tale signs can I look for that will tell me what sort of type I have?

Although there are a couple of programmers who post here, I have no idea whether they know anything about Silverlight (I don't).  Googling "Silverlight programming forum" gets some useful looking hits pointing at places which will be more likely to give you help on this.

You'll probably want to go with Web Application.

The main difference is that the Web App project compiles the entire app at one time.

If you want to edit everything on a page-per-page basis, you may want to go with Web Page, however, you'll end up with several .dll files.  It also allows you to fix a change on one page without building the entire site.
