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!

Ruby on rails perhaps?

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.

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

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

There is an awful lot of stuff out there running on tomcat/jboss with JSP and mySQL - don't forget that!

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