unable to create or save as new file

I am trying to create new files under /var/www/html
I can edit and save changes of existing files, all permissions are the same
I can cp a file and rename it with a new name, but if i open the new file in an editor and try to save any chances i get an error message of something like "unable to write to file, check permissions or that you have enough disk space"
df returns only 29% used

whats up ?

Code:
chmod a+w /var/www/html

I dont want to give everyone write priveleges, just owner and group

for example, a file just like it has the following
rwxrw-r-- 1 apache apache

now if I do chmod 777 on the file in question (the one i cant write to), then the problems go away...im missing something obviously
