Have you looked into using AuthorTools and BilateralCell? You can put 
text in one half of the cell and a graphic in the other. For an example, 
have a look at this year's Vermont High School Prize Examination, which 
was typeset entirely in Mathematic (and converted to a PDF for posting 
on the web).

The questions that include graphics were all done as bilateral cells.

An easy way to make bilateral cells is with the OpenAuthorTools palette.
