You typically need some sort of server side language such as PHP or ASP.NET, but I found some solutions (none of which I've tried) that might help.

http://www.snaphost.com/captcha/WebFormManagement.aspx looks like a service where they host the form for you and handle the captcha. There is a per-month fee.

http://www.protectwebform.com/ looks like an interesting take on the captcha. Rather than having the user fill out the captcha, it requires the the user to have javascript enabled (most do). Spam bots, they claim, typically don't. It's free. They do have a paid option where they will install it on your page for you.
