Take a look at HaXe (haxe.org) - HaXe is a dynamic but type safe
programming language, which is much better suited for Web programming
than ExtPascal (in my opinion). Since HaXe has many targets (JavaScript,
Flash, Neko bytecode, php, and C++) it's almost one language for all.
And even if it is "C" derived language, it feels very pascalish. If you
use HaXe with FlashDevelop you have code completion. It's fun to code
against an API like Google Maps or JQuery, if you code completion -
without it's a pain in the a.. And with HaXe you are sure, that your
code works like intended, because it's type safe.

I use:
- pascal and HaXe/Neko for the server
- HaXe for the rest
