linking to a file in the root folder


I have a file inside a folder (index.html). This folder is inside a master/root structure: HTML-DEFAULT\SCROLLER\index.html

In this SCROLLER\index.html file I have links to other pages in the root folder (HTML-DEFAULT), for example "".

In the default page, I have an iframe (<iframe src="scroller/index.html" style="margin-top:-10px;" width="100%" height="215" scrolling="no" ></iframe>)

However, in the SCROLLER\index.html page, when I use the <a href="../about_us.html">About Us</a> link syntax, the result I get is that the "about_us.html" is loaded inside the iframe box....??

ANY help would be greatly appreciated

That is the way it is supposed to work.  A Frame or an iframe operates as an independent web page unless you do something to cause a link to show up elsewhere.  This page shows what 'target' attributes are available to change the 'destination' of the link.

Thank you. I took your suggestion and edited it a little bit to include the target="_parent" and that did the trick.
