   put the width of this cd/4 into tHLoc
   put the height of this cd/2 into tVLoc
   set the loc of grc "line1" to tHLoc,tVLoc
   set the loc of grc "line2" to tHLoc * 2,tVLoc
   set the loc of grc "line3" to tHLoc * 3,tVLoc

This works best if the width of the card is evenly divisible by 4. Fractional locations don't 
always work, the engine will just round them to the nearest pixel. I also tried div instead of 
"/" which on my test stack worked a little better.
