Going from frame to non-frame web page

I am setting up a internal website and I am using a non-frame index
page, I then link to a page that contains frames... The problem is
when I link back to the home page it opens a new window. I want to use
the same browser window that I am currently in...

:code

<h2>Contents</h2>
<p><strong><a href="index.html" TARGET="top">Homepage</a></strong></p>
ect...

I appriciate any help that you can provide...

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.
