Adding body events to a single catalyst page

I wanted to include some javascript on a single page which was identical to the rest of the site, except it had 'onLoad()' and 'onResize()' events in the page body.

To do this, I created a new ./lib/MyApp/View/, which was identical to ./lib/MyApp/View/ except it pointed to a different wrapper: 'site/jsPageWrapper'.

My 'site/jsPage' was identical to 'site/wrapper' except it called the WRAPPER 'site/jsPageHTML'

In turn, 'site/jsPageHTML' was identical to 'site/html' but with the relevant event handlers on the body tags.

In my controller, I needed to forward to my new view: $c->forward('MyApp::View::NewView').

and that was that.
