embedding access form into a webpage

Firstly is it possible to embed a Microsoft Access database into a website? For example being able to enter data or look up data in a db through a web based front end.
If this is possible does anyone know how I can research this, and how heavily it will involve coding?
Thanks
(Sorry if this makes no sense)

The only thing I ever heard of that might do that is Caspio Bridge. If there was an easy answer, I would sure like to know of it too.

Thankfully, things like Terminal Server makes it all doable, but not via a web browser. For that, I think you need to design in something like PHP/SQL.

Let me know what you find. It's on my To Do List to examine Caspio Bridge to see what it exactly does. I could be barking completely up the wrong tree though, I only remember it from an ad I saw on this site a while back.
