hi sandra,
looks good, and like tom said, the "save" text isn't visible for me 
either, using mozilla 1.6 on XP (but is fine in IE). part of it is 
highlighted for comparison:
if you remove the <p> tag like kasmir suggested, it will fix the problem 
(at least it did when i tested it locally).

- on the articles.php page you have &amp; showing instead of the 
ampersand, and i get a 404 on the sponsors.php page (verified in moz / IE).

other than that, it looks good, and is easy to navigate through... and i 
agree with k on the navigation div. it's an eye-opener to view pages 
with css turned off. great job...
