Anchor target="_parent" in an iframe. I need it!


I have a set of valid xhtml pages that a third party web site is
integrating with via an <iframein his own page. This retains his own
branding template in the header and footer, with the iframe containing
my pages in the middle of the screen.

When it is time to exit my pages, to take the user back to the third
party web site, I need to direct the browser out of the iframe and to
one of his pages. I leave it at that and his site takes the user from

I use <a target="_parent"... for this. But then my xhtml is invalid
because the target attribute is deprecated!

I don't want to use javasacript to set the window location, because if
you haven't got javascript it isn't accessible.

So why is target deprecated? Surely target="_parent" is completely
safe and can't be abused by pop ups and the like?

I'm not with the w3c on this. Is there a way of directing a link to
the iframe's parent window without using target and without using

If not then sod the w3c and sod validation - I have functionality to
think of.
