Body tage has no onscroll or onresize event exposed

I am trying to create a floating div element in a web page. I need to be able to use:

<body onresize="alignFloatLayers()" onscroll="alignFloatLayers()">

But for some reason VS2005 ASP.Net 2.0 is complaining that these are not valid attributes of the <body> tag. Why? I see this being used in many articles I read on the internet regarding creating a floating element on a web page. All works except I cannot set these 2 event handlers therefore the object does not "float" when resizing or scrolling.

<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
    <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript" src="FloatLayer.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
new FloatLayer('floatlayer',15,15,10);
function detach(){
<body onresize="alignFloatLayers()" onscroll="alignFloatLayers()">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">

Open in new window

I already found and read that article... I still could not get the window.scroll method to work, intellisense does not even give me an "onscroll" or "onresize" event for object window. Frustrating but you know what, forget it. We have decided not to use a floating button after all (thank goodness).
