[MonoDevelop] clean md project from vs2k3 project sources, what about .resources?

I have opted to make a new monodevelop-0.9 solution and project for my
ASP.NET application, previously built with VS.Net 2003 and .Net-1.1.

I imported, .aspx, .cs, .asax files. Notably omitted were resources files,
as in 'acmeproject.login.aspx.resources'. I was insulated from their
contents by the VS.net GUI, so I'm unaware of their role or necessity.
They're binary-format files, so I don't want them if I don't need them. A
Hex editor doesn't show any data that I think source-ish, just assembly

I set the project to compile to a library, and manually established the
assembly references using the monodevelop GUI. The solution builds

Now, the problem: I have a runtime errors when I access an .aspx page with
a calendar and other web controls:

    Compilation Error
    Description: Error compiling a resource required to service this
    request. Review your source file and modify it to fix this error.

    Error message: /tmp/apache-temp-aspnet-0/1542a843/50785.0.cs(722,13) :
    error CS0117: `System.Web.UI.WebControls.Calendar' does not contain a
    definition for `selecteddaystyle'
    /tmp/apache-temp-aspnet-0/1542a843/50785.0.cs(728,13) : error CS0117:
    `System.Web.UI.WebControls.Calendar' does not contain a definition for

    error CS0117: `System.Web.UI.WebControls.Calendar' does not contain a
    definition for `dayheaderstyle'

    File name: acmeproject/placeorders.aspx

It seems much more likely that this has absolutely nothing to do with
resource files discarded from VS.Net, or 'resources' as defined in the
monodevelop IDE. Am I to assume that this is an incompatibility with the
web controls library, and will be a normal cross-platform porting task?

Any tips on what to do next? Thanks.
