Suggestions for Dynamic Content webpage development

i am looking at developing a web page with dynamic text content, the data source is a MySQL database and i am looking for suggestions on the technology i should use.
My prototype used server-side scripting in Perl on a web-page using auto-refresh (every three-seconds), unfortunately this caused unacceptable "flicker" of the image.
NB I have initially planned on using low powered clients (maybe Asus eeePC style) .

You could use asp.net with AJAX.. This supports updatePanels, which are containers within the page that can refresh without the who page reloading...

You could also consider to use, PHP ... it has good integration with MySQL ... of course both are open source

So are UpdatePanels an AJAX or a .NET feature?

What other techniques give a similar result?
