Vertically aligning text next to images

Hopefully, this query will be remedial HTML for most of you ...

What attributes can one use to determine the vertical positioning of text
alongside inline images? For example, I'm trying to align some brief
explanatory captions next to thumbnail images. I've aligned the image to
the left of the page, which allows the text to run flush with the right
side of the image. But since there's not much text, I'd like to have the
text begin about a quarter of the way down the image rather than at the
image's top border.

Is there any elegant way to accomplish this, or must I use <br>s?

Thanks in advance.
