top.document.getElementById('elementName').value.
works only if you have one level of framing... if you have a frame and then a frame inside the frame then top might not give the right results.. that why I tried doing it with names... the correct one wd have been...

top.framename.document.getElementById('elementName').value.
btw in java script whatever runs is correct to me....:-)
