Error when creating child theme: the custom styling and some basic functionality are missing. Any ideas what is still going wrong?

app/design/frontend/theme/custom/etc/theme.xml

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
</theme>
    <parent>theme/default</parent>
    <layout>
        <updates>
            <custom_layout>
                <file>custom.xml</file>
            </custom_layout>
        </updates>
    </layout>
</theme>

Next:

app/design/frontend/theme/custom/layout/custom.xml

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<layout>
    <default>
        <reference name="head">
            <action method="addItem"><type>skin_css</type><name>css/custom.css</name><params/><if><![CDATA[<!--[if (!NE IE 5)]><!-->]]></if></action>
        </reference>
    </default>
</layout>

Styling created at skin/frontend/theme/custom/css/custom.css
