Page 1 of 0.

This ought to be a bug in the FO processor. Report it to the vendor.

Is there anyway to get a total page count?

No, not in a standardized, processor independent way. As the element name already denotes you can only get *page numbers*. The approach you used would fail if there are multiple, independently numbered page seqences in the document and in a few other cases. You processor might offer a processor specific extension for getting the total number of pages.

If not, is there anyway to test
what fo:page-number-citation returns


(does it "return" anything?)

Not in a sense that you can use it at the XSLT stage. XSLT and FO processing are conceptually independent processing steps.
