Just made a test page at http://muinar.com/ctr/home-test.php with
the 3 logos floating, and in IE one of them jumps to the next line
in print preview.

The left nav bar is exactly 150px (border included), and each of the
3 images 190px, measured in a screenshot. The containing div is set
to 720px. And the whole contruction is actually 720px wide, not 1 px

When I set one of the 3 pics to 189px instead of 190, the layout
doesn't break anymore when printing.

Any insights anyone - ?

Thanks alot, Mike
