html contact form on front page

What is the easiest way to make the contact form show on the front
page. Meaning on want to keep the front html page and when someone
clicks on the contact us link the front page remains the same, but
there is a contact form in the middle of the page.
Any help would be appreciated.

<iframe src="contact-link.html" width="400" height="200">
<a href="contact.html">Contact us</a>
</iframe>

so that contact-link.html essentially contains just

<a href="contact.html">Contact us</a>

and contact.html contains the contact form.

Of course, it's a foolish way, but it's probably the _easiest_, as
requested.

Most contact forms are inferior to explicit indication of a company's email
address(es). What's worse, authors so often insert them _instead of_ such
information.

Also, many Web page owners never respond to Internet messages despite
the most elegant "Contact Us" Web pages. Don't do it if you don't
intend to actually respond to your messages.

Further, for a commercial Web site, the "Contact Us" page should also
include a postal address and a phone number. See #8 under

If a contact page shows up after you click on the link, then clearly
the front page didn't "remain the same"; something changed in it. Do
you intend that the original front page layout have a big empty space
on it where the form appears after you click on the link, or will the
front page's layout move around to accommodate the form when it
appears?
