Standard Maintenance pages

I've been helping a friend out with websites recently, and I am constantly writing a fairly standard type of maintenance page. Almost every page has the same layout, and fields. It ties to a single table from a database and allows the user to edit all of the fields. Occasionally some of the fields are dropdowns or option buttons, but mostly they are simple text fields.

I'm thinking of writing a program to generate this standard maintenance page and all of it's code with all of the fields defaulted to text boxes. Then I can modify a mostly complete page to finish it.

I think it will be a fun program, now to find the time to do it.
