I'm looking for pointers on which framework I should use to construct a web page that does the following:
1. Reads a list of items from a database 2. Displays items in a sortable table that has basic filtering capabilities. 3. Allows visitor to drag item to a basket, and remove if need be. 4. Allows visitor to submit list to server for further processing by PHP.

My preference would be the Yahoo UI Library. It might not be as "pre-built" as you'd like though. It's a really solid framework though with great documentation and examples. You might check out their DataTable component and Drag and Drop Utility.

YUI is good, but I have found most of the developers I talk to use jquery. The jquery library is very well documented, as is YUI. I found jquery to feel very complete and packaged while YUI was a little more modular. I think both are great, but I just have seen a trend towards jquery for designers and front-end people.
