Thanks merlyn, that's just the kind of thing I was aiming for (though I don't need more than one page).

Just for the benefit of other monks, merlyn's column includes this:

sub DEFAULT_FIELD { textfield(shift, "", 60) }
as the way fields are produced unless specifically over-ridden, and the tables are produced like this:
print table({ Border => 1, Cellpadding => 5 }, map { Tr( th($_->[1]), td(($_->[2] || \&DEFAULT_FIELD)->($_->[0])) )} @info );
where the details of the form are in the @info array.

Update: you know what's occurring to me? The details of the form (arrays of arrays for the most part) could easily be stored in XML -- I'm sure if the column were written today that might have come up.
