It's hard to be set on something when you are a complete novice.  Almost 
all of my websites are in Joomla which makes extensive use of MooTools 
and some components, jQuery. I know there can be conflicts if you aren't 
savvy about MooTools and jQuery, but in either case I'm not a JavaScript 

At this point I would just like to see a couple simple working examples 
which interact with the database that I can tinker with.
