I'm using a javascript function to define a drop down menu with a number of html links.  The menu is within a frame of my document, but I want the selected link to fill the entire screen (a la TARGET="_top").  What happens with my script is that it only fills the current frame.  Here's what I've coded so far:

<FORM NAME="Companies">
<SELECT NAME="lstItem">
<OPTION VALUE="http://www.lowrance.com">Lowrance
<OPTION VALUE="http://www.northwesternmutual.com">NW Mutual Life
<OPTION VALUE="http://www.erac.com">Enterprise Rent-a-Car
<OPTION VALUE="http://www.eds.com:80">EDS
<OPTION VALUE="http://www.navistar.com">Navistar
<OPTION VALUE="http://www.prince-machine.com">Prince
</SELECT>
<INPUT TYPE="button" NAME="btnSubmit" VALUE="<--  Connect to This Company"
OnClick="window.location.assign(Companies.lstItem.options[lstItem.selectedIndex].value)">
</FORM>

Any Ideas?

You almost answered your own question:

replace
OnClick="window.location.assign(Companies ...
with
OnClick="top.location.assign(Companies ...
or
OnClick="parent.location.assign(Companies ...

which according to the Netscape spec should work as you require.
