Feedback on:
Re-directing access within Frames

You should NEVER test
(self.location == top.location),
as location is a tainted property: if you enede up i a frameset located on another host, it will produce an error! The variable way is correct, but it should be a quite personal one, just for security.
Also, if you end in a foreign frameset, you cannont set "top.location.href", for same reasons. instead, you could write a link to the correct frameset with target=_top, and activate it wite document.links[name].click(),
which does unfortunately not work for some browser versions. Alternative, open a new window withe the correct location...
