Limiting presentation of data based on user rights (NOT the same as roles --
that may be trickier).
There are Codeplex projects that offer some field-by-field visibility and editability controls; see
and possibly others.

Subject: [sharepointdiscussions] Re: Hiding List form fields by user rights
in Moss 2007
I did something similar, and to hide and show rows (fields) of the
custom form according to certain permissions, you can use the
Conditional Formatting feature!
After you've inserted your custom form into the page in SharePoint
Designer, here's what you do.
In this example, I want to only show this field to people who have
"Approval" rights on the list:
1. Select the whole row that contains the field that you want to hide.
2. In Conditional Formatting, click <Create> and choose <show content>
3. Click <Advanced...>
4. In the expression box, put:
5. Click OK twice
6. Where did I get this mysterious "16" number?
Someone named Ian has listed all of the types of rights, and the
associated number. For example, "edit" is equal to 4.
