I'm using hook_theme to set templates for custom pages (pulling data external to Drupal) and though I managed to get templating sorted out, I need to differentiate from page.tpl.php -- but doing so appears to knock out html.tpl.php.

When trying to rebuild the functionality of html.tpl.php, the $head variable seems like it should come from drupal_get_html_head(); however, I lose all the standard CSS and JavaScript includes.

I understand the loss of meta content and shortlink, but I only get meta for Content-Type and Generator and viewport -- nothing else.

The hook_theme override occurs in a module to access the data; however, the template is part of the theme that should contain at least some of the basics.

NOTE: drupal_add_js and drupal_add_css are also not adding to the template head.

Anybody know if this is the expected behaviour, and if not, what might cause this?

In this case, $styles and $scripts are handled separately.

You'll want drupal_get_css() and drupal_get_js() to round things out.
