Default format-number on a string?

Hello. I have the following line that strips a number out of a string:

<xsl:value-of select="substring-before(substring-after(substring-after(securityKey, ':'), ':'), ':')"/>

I would like to divide this number by 10,000, but it's a string, so I can't. How can I make this a number so I can do math on it?

In XSLT 1.0 the conversion will be done automatically, or you can call the number() function.

In XSLT 2.0 you can call the number function. This will give you a double. If you want an integer, you can call the xs:integer() function.

Personally, in 2.0 I would do the string manipulation using a regular expression. I think your expression can be replaced by tokenize(securityKey, ':')[3].
