Link to a form with a pre-filled subject line?

A client of mine has a regular Contact Us form on her site. She's asking if it's possible to have a link elsewhere on the site that, when clicked, goes to the form and has a subject field pre-filled in. The caveat is that this form still needs to exist as a generic Contact Us form when a user navigates to it directly, so I can't just have the subject line exist in the form already: the link has to go to the form page and fill in the field somehow.

Is something like that possible? I know you can create subject-filled mailto links using the ?subject= code, but've never tried to do it with a link to a form and can't think how it might be done. The simpler the better as the site is just .shtml, nothing fancy.

Thanks,

This must be done using server side programming. HTML/CSS cannot do this.
