How ##//weekday//## is interpreted depends on the ##//firstdayofweek//## parameter.

If ##//abbreviate//## is true, a 3 letter abbreviation is returned, if false or omitted, the whole name is returned.

##//firstdayofweek//## is an optional parameter specified as follows:

{{table columns="3" cellpadding="1" cells="value;first day of week;constant;omitted;sunday;###;0;local settings;fbUseSystem;1;sunday;fbSunday;2;monday;fbMonday;3;tuesday;fbTuesday;4;wednesday;fbWednesday;5;thursday;fbThursday;6;friday;fbFriday;7;saturday;fbSaturday"}}
