That's correct; you don't need the GPL for webpages. A Creative Commons
liscense would be what you want if you just want to make your website
freely available for copying, etc. in the way the GPL makes software
freely available. As to which CC liscense you need for that sort of
thing, it really depends on the restrictions you wish to place on
copying, redistribution, etc. creativecommons.org has a section which
takes you through a series of questions that can help you find the
liscense best for you.

Cheers,
