Three Hints on 2nd phase of final project:
1) First of all,  HTML tags must be ignored.
2) It's strongly recommended to ignore stopwords in your classifiers. You can find a list of them in Time test collection (1st project of current semester).
3) As another point, you can remove infrequent terms (freq < 5, for example) from representative vector of each class. It makes your computations more simpler.
