If this were XSLT/XPath, I'd suggest the 'div' operator (which you can find in any guide to XPath such as Mulberry's XSLT/XPath Quick Reference at

Not knowing what that reference() function is, however, I can't say whether the 'div' operator will work for you. The argument you have for it doesn't look like XPath (e.g. the '#' isn't allowed in XML names, hence won't be found in true XPath location paths).

At the end of the line (below) I am using an xpath call to get the width from a in-memory xml document. I have the need to divide whatever that width comes out as by 300. Does anyone know how I can achieve this. The xml I am creating, is actually being sent to the adobe graphics server, and when I tried this:
width=\"(reference(adobe-content:myImageInfo2#/imageInfo/psd@width) / 300) it said that was not valid and not an int. Any ideas?

sb.append("\t<imageSize in=\"original\" resolution=\"72\" scalePolicy=\"doNotEnlarge\" constrainProportions=\"true\" width=\"reference(adobe-content:myImageInfo2#/imageInfo/psd/@width)\" />\n");
