Mike, what I'm trying to do is quite different, but I wonder if the fix 
might be related.

In my situation off the shelf WP + plugins does 99.5% of what I need.
But that .5% is non-negotiable.

I need to have a small set of custom pages.
And custom templates don't cut the mustard.
I need those pages to have their own head sections.
(I've read that there are ways of pushing JS and CSS into them using DOM 
... black magic if ever I've hear of any!)

So not sure ...
... I'll be pursuing this on my own. (Using WPMoo but I don't think 
that's too significant.)
