    I have a header and a footer iframe inside a page. What I would like
    to do is when i click on a link inside either of the iframe, that it
    open up inside the main page rather than the iframe itself. Is there
    a way to do that?

    Thanks

    :D

    To work around the SOP, only

    window.parent.location = ...

    as the `href' property is tainted. Scripting should be avoided here,
    though.

    And/or block-level elements positioned fixed with CSS (and IE 6 workaround),
    in which case none of the above would be necessary.
