page, I then link to a page that contains frames... The problem is

Is that really a paragraph? and is it really strong emphasis?

Anyway, a quick look at the HTML spec would have told you that
target="top" targets the link at the window or frame called "top" and
opens a new window called "top" if none exists. target="_top" is the
special case that targets the link to the uppermost level of teh
current frameset and is what you want.
