LaTeX2ε kernel 2015/01/01 increased the upper limit of math alphabets from 16 to 256 for XeTeX/LuaTeX. Also, pLaTeX2ε kernel 2016/11/29 introduced the similar change for e-pTeX/e-upTeX. However, the upper limit for math symbol families remains unchanged, so only 16 symbol fonts are available.

This package increases the upper limit of math symbols from 16 (LaTeX2ε default) to 256, using `\omath...`

primitives. These primitives are originally introduced in Omega, and are currently available in the followings:

- e-pTeX/e-upTeX (Japanese TeX engine)
- Aleph (successor of Omega)

## Supported formats

The package mathfam256.sty works on the following formats:

- pLaTeX (run on e-pTeX)
- upLaTeX (run on e-upTeX)
- Lamed (run on Aleph)

All of these are enabled in TeX Live by default.
