How about doing whatever is possible in plain JavaScript and the
falling back to server-side validation through Ajax? There could also
be a second fallback to pure old-style server-side validation.

HTML::Widget::JavaScript is something I used for some small projects.
It worked well for me on those really simple cases but it currently
lacks substance, customizability and is not that well-designed
overall. I'd rather deprecate/remove it from CPAN and use a better
solution, if someone makes it available. Or maybe I'll try to distort
the time-space continuum and find some free time to develop it
further, who knows.
