Etiquette -- Napkin upon leaving the table mid-dinner

Seems there are two rules of thought -- that it be left on the chair (as no one wants to see a used napkin on the table or next to a dish) -- which is what I usually do; or, that it be left to the right of the dish.......

Often, I return to the table and find the napkin on my seatback.... Occasionally remember obtaining a new napkin at ultra-high-end places. But for the normal places like Town, Daniel..... how best to leave the napkin to go to the ladies' room?
