Just tried it (Netscape 3.0/Linux)
<BASE TARGET="_parent"> does what you want, "PARENT" makes a new window
of that name (as per discussion here).

Also, putting
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Window-target" CONTENT="_parent">
in the target frame works sometimes (or _top, etc.) to force
the current page to the full window.
