Don't know if you consider Plone's standard widgets pretty, but the
plone.app.form package makes formlib widgets fit into Plone's
standard layout, which may be similar to what you want.
That's not using JS libraries though; in general, it's a bad idea to
*depend* on such JS libraries; rather they should be additional benefits
for those with browsers that support it.
Incidentally, if you're feeling adventurous, you may want to check out
KSS, which is the JS meta-framework Plone 3 will use (meta, because it
can use prototype or mochikit or whatever; it's just a way of binding JS
behaviour to the page using a CSS-like syntax, and writing server side
logic in python). KSS has a plain-JS bit (called kukit) which does the
binding and command handling and a plain-Zope 3 bit (for server side
actions and resource management). Plone has its own bindings and
Plone-specific actions of course, but there's nothing Plone- or
Zope2-specific about the framework or common actions.
