I'm trying to customize the edit form for a library (site pages library, to be specific) but the edit form is blank. Other libraries on the site (document library, custom lists, etc.) work fine but when I create a new edit form for the site pages library it is blank. I look at the .aspx file in sharepoint designer and I see the columns in the code but nothing is displayed.

It is worth mentioning this is for a custom content type that inherits the "web part page" type.

This is the table element for the 'Title' column

    <td width="190px" valign="top" class="ms-formlabel">
        <H3 class="ms-standardheader">
    <td width="400px" valign="top" class="ms-formbody">
        <SharePoint:FormField runat="server" id="ff2{$Pos}" ControlMode="Edit" FieldName="Title" __designer:bind="{ddwrt:DataBind('u',concat('ff2',$Pos),'Value','ValueChanged','ID',ddwrt:EscapeDelims(string(@ID)),'@Title')}"/>
        <SharePoint:FieldDescription runat="server" id="ff2description{$Pos}" FieldName="Title" ControlMode="Edit"/>

Which is a child of this element:

<xsl:template name="dvt_1.rowedit">

How can I make these columns visible?
