In 2007 I am trying to understand the use of workflows added to page based content types that will eventually live in a page library.

If I add a workflow to such a content type then use that content type the workflows aren't available. If I follow the same process for document based content types and add these to a document library the workflows work fine.

stupid question....did you try to publish the workflow first? – Mike Dec 17 '12 at 18:54
The workflow is created/added from within the CT settings. I didnt know it could be published? – dmce Dec 18 '12 at 11:18

Check if "Require content approval for submitted items" enabled on "Pages" document library. This option can be found in "Versioning settings" of document library settings...
