Forms require validation, and this can be done either on the client side or the server side. Validation of forms mostly involves checking that the information a person has input into the form is accurately formed, and that no required fields have been skipped.
Server-side validation for forms can be achieved with almost every conceivable server-side application language. You can do it with PHP, ASP, .NET, ColdFusion, Perl/CGI, Python/Zope; if you can name an application language used on the Web, it'll have form validation built-in.
