Breaking out of an iframe.

On CiteYa I wanted to provide a link from the rating wiget to the main site so that people could go see what it was all about.

I tried the usual javascript parent.document.location.href setting but that caused an error because the contents of the iframe doesn't have the rights to access the stuff int he parent page.

In the end I found that top.location.href worked a treat.
