How to make pop-up appear outside iFrame

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
 I need for a link/button located on a page within an iFrame, to pop-up outside the iframe and over the parent window (holding the iFrame).

Can anyone help me with the code? It needs to work in all browsers, as this is for a client.

Will jQuery do this, or AJAX? I"m working in a CMS with no page extensions, so it will need to work without server-side coding. I can use jQuery/AJAX or JavaScript, or something that can work without page extensions.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
