228 equal divisiondivides the octave into 228 equal parts of 5.263 cents each. It tempers out the Pythagorean comma, 531441/524288, in the 3-limit, and 225/224 and 240047/240000 in the 7-limit, so that it supports 7-limit compton temperament and in fact provides the optimal patent val. In the 11-limit it tempers out 225/224, 441/440, 1375/1372 and 4375/4356, so that it supports 11-limit compton. Aside from the Pythagorean comma, the 12-comma, it tempers out the enneadeca or 19-tone-comma, and this is reflected in the fact that 228 = 12 * 19.
