I think you read charts right to left on right side and left to right on wrong side.  (if you are knitting on straights.)

this makes sense, especially since the only lace patterns i've done have wrong sides that are all purls... anyone else have a different way?

Sometimes the wrong side rows aren't included in the chart (especially if they're just purl or just knit) so then you just read right to left for each right side row, starting at the bottom.

The idea with a chart (either lace or cables) is that it looks like the finished piece.  So you start at the bottom and work right to left for right sides and left to right for wrong sides (often a symbol will have a RS and a WS meaning for this reason).  So at any point what's hanging off your needles corresponds to what's below your current working row on the chart.
