HTML Element question

I have a form that, for various reasons, is not amenable to using CoffeeCup Form Designer to create and the client keeps changing this or that around so a component doesn't work out very well. The site is a sales lead generation endeavor and it has 9 landing pages so manual edits (at the moment) require opening each page and pasting the new 'form source' into the html element, export, then publish the pages to the server.. This is definitely labor intensive to change one phrase or line or label or add/drop a field.

It occurred to me that if the html element could point to an external file as its content - life would be a lot more pleasant so I wondered if this would be possible and how I would implement this? Example the source file for the html target element might be form01.html - located in the same directory as the primary web site.

Thanks for any suggestions

Have you tried an iframe? The Form Builder app is using it all the time.

Php include would also work.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Yes, even better! Then you don't have to worry about any changing size.
