This isn't OT. I suspect a lot of us spend a lot of time just gluing HTML forms together. I feel your pain. As to what I'm doing:
I've been using Alzabo to model my database and store "column meta-data" that I then pass to CGI::FormBuilder to create forms. All the stuff that doesn't come directly off of alzabo I store in the "comment" that you can associate with each column, then I eval this comment and pass to CGI::FormBuilder::field.
I've also got some rough code doing a similar thing running via Mason, and the Mason version can render 1 to 1 or n to 1 cardinal relationships, too. I'm trying to figure out the best way to do n to n cardinality.
I plan on writing this up once I clear my schedule in a while, I'm REALLY digging this methodology.
