Geocoding with GeoNames.org

I've been doing a lot with goecoding lately.  I've been using the Yahoo! Geocoder.  We've been looking to change that because Yahoo! doesn't have good support for place names.  For addresses, it is great, but for place names, it is rather poor.  We had been thinking of using the live.com geocoder because it seems to have good support for place names.  Its okie dockey for addresses.  We just found this site called geonames.org.  It looks fairly promising.  Its data is put out under the creative commons license.  More latter.
