Default Resizing and moving new window through opener

While studying "Navigating and opening new windows" under section "The window object", Chapter:5(JavaScript in the Browser), Page No:142 Book title: "Professional JavaScript™ for Web Developers" by Nicholas C. Zakas, Wiley Publishing Inc. , I found following code which doesn't work actually.

var oNewWin = window.open("http://www.wrox.com/","wroxwindow",
"height=150,width=300,top=10,left=10,resizable=yes ");
oNewWin.moveTo(100, 100);
oNewWin.resizeTo(200, 200);

You can only close that window by

Can anyone tell me the way to do this?

Harjinder: Since your question isn't directly related to the book we're discussing in this forum, it would be better posted in our general JavaScript forum as a new thread:
