As far as i'm aware there is no such site. But i offer a simple a level chemistry explanation.
The more carbon there is in the steel, the stronger (and more brittle it is)
stainless steel is just an alloy of iron, which has carbon and chromium in it - the chromium prevents the rusting to occur.
Ultimately, it is your choice:
High carbon steels are easier to sharpen, and hold an edge better - but rust unless oiled regularly.
Stainless steels take longer to sharpen, retain an edge reasonably well, and do not rust as quuickly.
hopefully my addition to this thread will attract a steel buff - who will be able to tell you a bit more - or if not, head over to brtish blades, and post there:
Hope this is helpfull,
Post script: carbon steels allow you to do things that stainless ones do not ( i.e. producing a spark when scraped against flint)
