No published HTML specification contains such an attribute.
It is a Microsoft invention. Technically, you could write a DTD
of your own and validate against it. (Microsoft never bothered
documenting, in public, the version of HTML that IE eats,
even syntactically. But you could try doing that, at least
for extensions that you use.)

I have no idea of why you would want a page to be reloaded after it has
been resized; it sounds quite unnecessary. But maybe the scripting
language that you use has some ways of doing that without using
nonstandard attributes in HTML. The language might have other tools for
capturing events.
