(Hate 'em, hate 'em, hate 'em.)
I would have to agree - I hate building forms too. It is somewhat tedious. But how long do you spend coding your form as opposed to the rest of the real work? I'd wager it is an insignificant amount of time - and future modifications are easier on the static HTML - and there are fewer processing cycles for static HTML - and you can give it to an HTML designer - and you can track insignificant changes via cvs/svn.
As my wife likes to say - pick your battles.
