Print preview in IE looks different from print preview in Firefox.

Hi, I am using a javascript to load some charts into a canvas element each on a web page (sharepoint site).
It is seven charts and in firefox everything looks neat with 3 charts on the first two rows and the seventh and last on the third row.

However, in IE only the first two rows are visible (six charts) but they are pushed to the right on the page and the charts on the right hand side are chopped of in the middle, i.e. some of the charts are not visible.

On the site it looks the same but with print preview the IE version is a bit messed up.


<table id="chartsTable">

<style type="text/css">
              border-style: ridge;
              text-align: center;
            width: 250px;
            height: 205px;

<style type="text/css" media="print">
              border-style: none;
              text-align: center;
            width: 250px;
            height: 205px;
float: left;
#charts {margin-left: -0px; float: left; width: 100%;}


Javascript (part of it) to load charts

while (charttitle.length > cols*rows) rows += 1;  // work out how many rows are needed in the chart table
var html = '<tbody>';
var j=0;
for (var r = 1; r <= rows; r++)
      html += '<tr>';
        for (var c = 1; c <= cols; c++)
            clickableCell=(j<ListViewArray.length)?'<div id=\"chart'+j+'\" style=\"cursor:pointer;\" onclick=\"window.open(\''+goPage[j]+'\',\'_self

\')\">'+charttitle[j]+'</div>':'<div id=\"chart'+j+'"><p></p></div>';
            html += '<td class="tableCell" col="' + c +'">' + clickableCell + '</td>';
      html += '</tr>';
      html += '</tbody>';
// console.log("html: "+ html);
