This one checks to see if the current document (the one the
script is in) is in a frame (which is the same as NOT being
at the top of the window). If the page is at the top, the
script does nothing. If the page isn't at the top, the script
resets the current window location to BE at the top of the window
(thus not in a frame).

This does the same as the first, but checks the frame name and
doesn't break out of a "body" frame, but does break out of
all others. This way you can protect your own stuff while still
using a framed layout.

Does this help?
