If you know C++ (or python or a bunch of others) then I'd recommend
QT4, though that's because I have zero DHTML/AJAX experience. Very
clean and docs are great (try out the tutorial in Assistant). Just
learned it and got a library search app up in a jiffy.
And your very own TCD mathsoc will have a copy of some QT books soon.
