Random Number Generator

I have included the following variable in my XSLT for generating a
random number:

  <xsl:variable name="seed">
            <xsl:value-of select="math:random() * 1000"
                xmlns:math="java:java.lang.Math"/>
  </xsl:variable>

This is working well in the XSLT and Saxon 9.  However, when I call the
XSLT from Calabash I get the following error:

Description: XPath syntax error at char 14 on line 89 in {math:random() *
1000}:
    Cannot find a matching 0-argument function named
{java:java.lang.Math}random()

Are there any tricks of the trade in XProc to get a random number generator
working in XSLT.

TIA!

Betty
