[Plone-UI] Plone 3: Overriding default javascript files

I am using Plone 3 and currently trying to override one of the default
javascript files i.e. table_sorter.js.

Under the browser directory of my product, I created a directory
"javascripts" (just to keep things organized), then registered the directory
as a ressource, in configure.zcml:

    layer=".interfaces.IThemeSpecific" />
Where "myproduct" is self explanatory. Then in jssregistry.xml, I registered
and ordered the javascript files:

<javascript id="++resource++myproduct.javascripts/table_sorter.js" 
    insert-after="jquery.js" />
Where table_sorter.js is the name of the javascript file that I need to

The reason I need to override the file is because the default has no way of
telling the user whether a table is sortable or not until it is clicked on.
I need to include icons on the table header by default.

I have followed the above steps but it does not seem to work. I have no idea
where I'm going wrong. Any help will be highly appreciated.

P.S. I've also heard that I may need to override the file in the skins
folder, I have no idea on how to accomplish this.
