Hmmmm ... personally, i would use a templating system for this kind of problem, but ... if you don't mind the perfomance hit, you could point each key in your hash to an anonymous subroutine that takes a single arg and calls the proper CGI subroutine:
my $thisrow; my @rows; my %fields = ( name => sub { textfield(-name=>$_[0],-size=>50,-maxlength=>80 +) }, email => sub { textfield(-name=>$_[0],-size=>50,-maxlength=>80 +) }, site_name => sub { textfield(-name=>$_[0],-size=>50,-maxlength=>80 +) }, descripton => sub { textfield(-name=>$_[0],-size=>50,-maxlength=>80 +) }, comments => sub { textarea(-name=>$_[0],-cols=>50,-rows=>10) }, ); foreach my $key (keys %fields) { $thisrow = td({-align=>'right',-valign=>'TOP'},$key) . td({-align=>'left',-valign=>'TOP'}, $fields{$key}->($key)) ; push(@rows,$thisrow); }
However, i would never use that in any of my code. The way i see it, using HTML generation methods IS my abstraction. Wrapping that into something else seems a bit silly. Have you tried HTML::Template yet? You might find that it is all you need. ;)

p.s. don't forget that hashes are not ordered - you might want to try a list of hashes instead
