I've just been looking into something called the 'xml-http-request 
object', which allows you to use javascript to query the server, so your 
logic can all be on the server. Its also called Javascript Remote 
Scripting if you want to google for more details.

I haven't tried it in practise (yet!) but it looks quite useful. It's 
what google uses for a lot of its work (gmail, etc.).

Here are some URL's with more details:
