I am trying to render a form with template with the following:

function FacebookForm($fbFields) {

		$actions = new FieldSet(
			new FormAction('doFaceBookForm', 'Register')

		$memberfields = singleton('XEUser')->getMemberFormFields();

		$fields = new FieldSet();
		$reqFields = array();
		foreach($fbFields as $key => $value){
				case 'Gender':
					$reqFields[] = 'Gender';
				case 'DateOfBirth':
					$reqFields[] = 'DateOfBirth';
		$validator = new RequiredFields($reqFields);

		$form = new Form($this, 'FaceBookForm', $fields, $actions,$validator);
		return $form->renderWith(array('FacebookController','Page'));
		//return $form;


When I just

return $form
my form appears but in the default so I created a new template and added
return $form->renderWith(array('FacebookController','Page'));
. When I do this, I get everything that should be in the page but with no styles being applied at all and the form doesn't even appear. Here is my FacebookController template:

<div id="left">
	<h2>Thankyou for signing up with your Facebook account</h2>
	<p>The following details could not be obtained from your Facebook account, please enter them now.</p>

<div id="right">


anyone shed any light on this?
