    look

    When I want somebody to see precise website should I say (or write to him):
    a) "Please, take a look at this webpage."
    or
    b) "Please, have a look at this webpage." ?

    Both sentences are perfectly fine with no difference in meaning.

    Also, it's not necessary to put commas after 'please.'

    Re: look

    Additional question: what is wrong with usage of "precise"? Is it uncommon to use it?

    "Precise" doesn't work. You could use "particular".

    Re: look

    I would invite them to look at the "website", not a the "webpage". Most sites have more than one page so unless you only want them to look at one page, then use "website".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
