Have you tried to write a wrapper for ExtJS or any other advanced JS  
library that provides advanced UI widgets with server side data  
binding, not just DOM helper and manipulator?

Because I don't need flash or other non standard browser plugins/ 
addons. I like the Morfik approach that keep away from third party  
browser extensions, just work with the native browser features (HTML,  
CSS, and JS). Besides, I'm too lazy to learn yet another language  
while I believe I could write anything in pascal.

It's a myth! I've been using pascal to write many web applications. I  
found myself as productive as when I write desktop applications. I  
even could reuse my legacy pascal code in new web applications. It  
means I save times for coding and bug hunting.

Yes, but now I don't see hexa could fit into my requirements.

Exactly! It's not about religion, it's about how to get the job done.  
I just don't think with my skill and knowledge of hexa would get the  
job done better and faster compare to if I stick with pascal and the  
available tools (despite some lacks of them).
