PHPMyAdmin does exactly this sort of thing, as do a lot of SQL
workbench programs. I'm sure there is one out there that will handle
PostgreSQL. My advice to you is not to reinvent the wheel. If they're
admin users, do you really need to wrap it up in a self-contained
webpage for them, or could you just show them using an administrative
tool that can handle ERD?
