Website Known Issues

This page describes known issues related to the ECHO website itself. For data quality problems, please see the Known Data Problems page.


  • Some formatting problems remain in Internet Explorer 8 (IE8). IE8 issues will not be addressed. Later versions of Internet Explorer will continue to be supported.
