This dialog seems to be missing the options for page language, codebehind file, and master page. Is there anything I can do to get them back, or do I have to reinstall?

the image shows the dialog as it would appear for a winforms/library etc application, is the project definitely a web application project?

Yes it is. I even reset the interface to the default web interface. I guess there are always two ways to go about doing things, so I'm managing to get by just fine...but if something is broken then that is a concern.

I found out what causes this problem.

You have two choices in Visual Studio when creating a new Web project - you can create an ASP .Net Web Application or an ASP .Net  Web Site.

When a new Web Application is chosen, you get different behavior in VS 2005, including the inability to select a Master page via a checkbox on the New Form dialog screen. (You can select a Master page by choosing a new Web Content Form as opposed to just a new Web Form). Other behavior when creating a Web Application is the inability to use an App_Code folder that automatically compiles contained classes.

I ended up re-creating the solution as a Web Site and everything worked as anticipated!
