Default Clsing Parent Framed Window

I have an main page that in comprised of 2 frames, I want to be able to close the main page from a button from the top frame page. Is it possible? My main page is:

<frameset rows="5%,*" border="0">
    <frame name="maintop" src="maintop.shtml" marginwidth="10" marginheight="10" scrolling="auto" frameborder="0">
    <frame name="main" src="main.shtml" marginwidth="10" marginheight="10" scrolling="auto" frameborder="0">
My Maintop page is:


function goHist(a)
   history.go(a); // Go back one.
<center><FORM METHOD="post">
<INPUT TYPE="button" VALUE=" BACK " onClick="goHist(-1)">
<INPUT TYPE="button" VALUE="FORWARD" onClick="goHist(1)">

Add this to your top page:

<input type='button' value='Close' onclick='parent.window.close()'/>

Where will you be in 100 years?
Try new FreshView 0.2!
There are only two stupid questions: the one you can't find the answer to and don't ask, and the one that you can find the answer and do ask.
