This method saves changes made to this PublishingPage instance. Call this method after you set values on the PublishingPage; this allows the changes to persist.

The user must have edit permissions on the PublishingPage to call this method.

This example sets some properties on a PublishingPage object, saves the new values, and publishes the PublishingPage.

Before compiling and running this example, verify that this SPLIstItem is a list item in the pages document library of a PublishingWeb.

This example assumes that the document library that contains the SPListItem requires content approval.
