The last time I had to paginate database results on HTML, I used the
Data::Page[1] module.  If you're asking about just getting the database
results into HTML in the first place, there are a handful of frameworks
that specialize in this, Maypole and Catalyst come immediately to mind.
Searching for "perl crud[2]" may turn up some information on that.

I've generally never needed to dump data directly to the web, and when
I've done it for testing, it's never been fancier than,

    $sth->bind_columns( \$field1, ... );

    while ( $sth->fetch ) {
        print q(<tr>);
        print qq(<td>$field1</td>);
        # etc.
        print q(<tr>);
