Re: No power in ceiling light, power at switch
Also, this fan/light isn't on a 3-way circuit, correct? I've run into situations where a fixture was on an unknown 3-way, the unknown switch gets flipped and the fixture no longer works. This probably isn't your problem, but it is worth mentioning.

If you've got power to the switch but not to the fan, then the issue will be relatively easy to find, you just have to trace the wires from point A to point B, inspect any junction boxes and all connections in between.
As Houston suggests, make sure you've got power in AND out of the switch, and check all connections within the switch box. Do the same at the ceiling fan box.
If you do not have power at the switch, start by figuring out everything that is on the same circuit as the fan/switch, then you'll have a "map" of the circuit and a general idea of where to look for the problem.
