loading a partial via AJAX

Hi

I accept that partials are not intended to be exposed via a URL

However I'd like to load my basic _form.html.erb partial for my model
to build basic AJAX form

So one way to do this is to put something like this in the controller:

def basic_form
  render :partial=>"form"
end

...... but...... is there a cleaner way?

cheers

Any ideas folks?
