My personal contact form is seen through an iFrame
An iFrame (a window cut into your web page) is great to limit the size of the form and response page!
Your form will blend on the page and better yet, the personal response will show up inside the iFrame on the contact page letting your visitors still have access to your links!
Make your "contact" page the same color, place your links to other pages, fax, phone, etc as necessary. Also include an iFrame with no border pointing to your plain form page. (see my contact page)
My iframe code on the contact page, which cuts a window in the page (and shows the form page)
<iframe name="FRAME1" src="id68.htm" width="345" height="438" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" >
Make a page that is totally plain, except for the form. (mine: http://www.samisite.com/samiformufm2.php)
Make a page that will be used as your response. (mine: http://www.samisite.com/thanks.htm)
Tutorial for this option will be made shortly.
