Simple positioning problem

I'll do this with a table if need be, but can I do it without?

I have a heading tag containg an image on the left with text
to the right at absolute middle of the image. There is space
underneath the text to put a small graphic aligned with the
bottom of the first graphic, like this:

+-------+ +--------+

Obviously, Achilles is on the left and the tortoise wants to be
on the right. How can I fit him in there?

I posted a similar question yesterday, but didn't get an answer that resolved the issue. (Thanks to those who tried though.) The background: I've read in books and online that if you have one element with "relative" positioning, such as a <div>, it creates a "positioning context" for element within it. E.g., if you have a <p> inside your...
