Re: how to format page number citation as "01"

citing page numbers
actually what I really want is format like this:
page-number OF total-page-number ( 02 OF 08 )

so I use format in page-sequence to set the format for page-number
      <fo:page-sequence master-name="main" format="01">

but it doesn't work with page-number-citation which i used to get total
page number
the result i get is : 01 OF 3

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

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?
