If it hasn't been mentioned here before, here's my advice on table and 
column namings: do NOT use mixed cases, stick to lower case (or upper case).

And in case you want to write a DB abstraction library yourself: please 
study ADOdb and PEAR::DB unless you're familiar with other DBs than 
Mysql. Some parts of their API look strange, but all of them have a 
reason. As Oracle and SQL Server are available for free there is no 
excuse for developing on Myslq/PostgreSQL only.

Good luck,
