I wan't to create a printable webpage but.... whenever the table gets longer than one page, the result is cut off

The page displays okay on browsers

But everytime the data exceeds one page, it was cut off in the middle ( pie charts /  are cut off, instead of printed on the next page )

You may use the page-break-before property: http://www.w3schools.com/CSS/css_ref_print.asp

It works well with Firefox, but it is trickier to implement for Internet Explorer.

I had the same problem a few weeks ago. The solution I've suggested in my previous comment worked on Firefox, but table cells were still split in the middle if the table exceeded one page. It was even more difficult to make page-break-before work on Internet Explorer. I really needed to respect the rules given here: http://www.w3schools.com/CSS/pr_print_pagebb.asp. Especially, I had to "use the page-breaking properties as few times as possible and avoid page-breaking properties inside tables, floating elements, and block elements with borders."

As far as I know, there is no satisfying solution.
