I recently worked on a manual that had up to six graphics per page, and
tables worked well to keep them corralled. Mind you, aligning the graphics
within the cells is a little idiosyncratic, but it's a matter of figuring
out Word's rules and working within them.

This becomes a normal way of handling graphics if you have to do the same
thing in HTML.
