Is there any open-source movement out there that allows someone to develop in a style similar to ASP.net?  PHP/ASP are out, since they have the "spaghetti code" approach.  I don't even know if one exists, so I'm just interested if someone else knew something I didn't know!

What I'm really looking for is a way to separate the HTML design from actual code, like ASP.net provides.  I looked at Ruby on Rails, and it looks similiar to PHP/ASP in that you need to embed code in the actual page.  This is not what I want!  I Couldn't find an example with Python, but my guess is it's done in the same way.  Any other ideas?

Ever looked into JSP using Servlets.  AJAX might be a way to go.  With ajax there's a servlet that does the database queries behind the scenes, and is activated with javascript.

Websites are getting bigger and complicated by the day. Video, images, custom fonts are all great for showcasing your product/service. But the price to pay in terms of reduced page load times and ultimately, decreased sales, can lead to some difficult decisions about what to cut.

I use what you want in PHP al the time??!! There's template engines that do the trick for you.
Have a look at:

Also there's XML/XSL that allows you to seperate layout from logic code...
