I want to format the page number citation like "01" instead of "0"
how to put xsl function like <fo:page-number-citation  ref-id='endofdoc'/>
into the value of format-number like format-number
ref-id='endofdoc'/>', '00')

In XSLFO 1.0 the rendering of a cited page number is dictated by the page number formatting of the page sequence in which the cited page is found. This cannot be overridden at the point of the citation.

This design frees the stylesheet writer from having to know the formatting of the page sequence ... consider that perhaps front matter might be formatted using roman numerals, yet one is in a chapter page sequence. The citation will render the page number of the front matter in the front matter numbering conventions, thus guaranteeing the format of the number in the flow of the text will match the format of the number in the cited page sequence.

This matching would be very important (I would think) for the reader navigation ... why would you want to cite the page number differently than how the page you are citing formats its page number?
