This database does not contain all decisions issued by the judges within OHA, but we are continuously adding to the list and hope to have all decisions included here eventually. </p></td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan="2"><p><span class="bigfont">To search decisions issued by the Secretary of Education go <A href="secretarydecisions.html">here.</A> </span> <p><span class="bigfont">For all of the hypertext decisions, you can view the full text of the decision online by following the link. Please note, however, that due to the formatting limitations of HTML, some formatting features of the original decisions, such as page numbering, lines, and spacing, may have been modified or lost in the conversion from the original format to HTML. In 2004, OHA began posting its decisions in PDF format to render its original decisions with high fidelity, thus minimizing the loss of any formatting features. In the event of any discrepancies between the original decision and the HTML or PDF version presented here, the original decision shall be controlling.
