Dear Programming gurus,

Please could you advise me on the best programming language for a graphical website.
I am a VB/ASP classic programmer, but can also do javascript and java. I've looked into Ruby, C++, and c#.

Ultimately it needs to be:

- able to dynamically react with user intervention
- preferably open source and not commercial based
- purely programmable with no WYSIWYG interface
- quick and easily programmable
- canvas drawing programmable objects
- integrated API

Any help would be much appreciated.

2) JavaScript

if you want something that interacts with the server:
3) any server-side language.

I'd use PHP and jQuery.

Sometimes words ain't enough to express something. That's why computer scientists use double words.

Kinda building on what WingedPanther said: You could use HTML/CSS and AJAX, which is Javascript-based. Server-side stuff could be done in pretty much any language you want, but is usually in PHP.
