Im trying to print the full path to my theme in my html.tpl.php file. In the following code the 2nd part prints correctly but the first part does nothing.

<?php print base_path() . path_to_theme(); ?>

It should be

base_path().drupal_get_path('theme', 'THEME_NAME')

Other Examples of path

$GLOBALS['base_url'] => http://example.com/drupal
base_path() => /drupal/
request_uri() =>    /drupal/documentation?page=1
request_path() => documentation
current_path() => node/26419

I assumed my code wasnt working as I was expecting an absolute url but Ive now realized that when Drupal is in the route it just returns a /. So it is in fact working fine.
