I'm trying to add a custom Javascript file and a jQuery file to my site. I've place the following code in my local.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<layout version="0.1.0">
    <default>
        <reference name="head">
            <action method="addJs"><script>lib/jquery-1.10.2.min.js</script></action>
            <action method="addItem"><type>skin_js</type><name>js/main.js</name></action>
        </reference>
    </default>
</layout>

But that didn't work. Then I added the lines to page.xml

<block type="page/html_head" name="head" as="head"> 
    <action method="addJs"><script>lib/jquery-1.10.2.min.js</script></action>
    <action method="addItem"><type>skin_js</type><name>js/main.js</name></action>
</block>

But that didn't do the trick either. Eventhough the I have the cache disabled,I did flush it again and I even rebuild the indexes. Now i've run out of ideas to try.
