Ack. I should clarify that we did use the iframe tag for the embedded code. We didn't run into any major issues with it.
I have used Google Forms twice recently (a post-event survey for the Quality Fair at http://www.umn.edu/ohr/quality/survey/index.html - closed for new entries, a questionnaire regarding job duties for a classification project). I did not need to use an iFrame tag; just plopped the code right on the page. I thought the whole process seemed fairly easy, and it was nice being able to have the survey within the OHR template. The folks who used the data on the back-end thought it was fine. I found the inability to format the survey in any simple way a little frustrating (particularly that we could not use html or embed links), but we just worked around it.

Has anyone used Google Forms and embedded one in a Web page? We're looking for a way to post a form within the template of a site, so as not to force the person to leave to a separate site using a 3rd party form (UMSurvey, etc.). Does it require iframe tag? Is that good or bad?
