Calender support

 Calender support
I wish to convert a date from the Christian calender to the Hijri (Islamic) calender. I am using XSLT 2.0 with Saxon 8. I have tried various permutations and differences of the following:

<xsl:sequence select="format-date(current-date(), '[Y&#x0661;] [Mn] [D&#x0661;]', 'Islamic', 'SH', 'SH')"/>

This prints the year and day in arabic but remains in the Christian calender. The character &#x0661; doesn't seem to work with [Mn] either. Can anyone advise what I should be doing here? Does Saxon support the arabic calender and does it support other calenders?
