Awhile back, AuthorTools supported MakeBilateral[] which was useful for pro=
ducing documents with text and graphics side-by-side.  An example of how th=
is was used is available here:

In Version 9, I am struggling to recreate this effect (AuthorTools in v9 do=
es not seem to support MakeBilateral).  While I can use the Classroom Assis=
tant to create a 1x2 grid and play around with styles to get something simi=
lar, I'm running into two problems:
1) I can't seem to control the vertical alignment so that the text is at th=
e top (not the middle) of the adjacent graphic, and
2) To render the graphics, I must "Evaluate in Place", which overwrites the=
 input (I want both the In and Out cells to appear in the right cell of the=
 1x2 grid).

Is how to do this documented anywhere?  If not, can someone provide a tip o=
r pointer?

Thank you.
