You cannot judge this -- on the basis of two cells in one row. Add a  
new row with a different text length and the same picture of  
different length, now changing positions in the row! And don't forget  
the second minipage's width ...

Presuming that the picture is higher than the line of text, then the  
text is vertically centre-aligned, as so often in TeX. You can use an  
invisible (one dimension nulled) ruler with maybe a lift (\rule[<some  
amount>]{width}{height}) to position the text, or \raisebox{<by some  
amount>}{the object} ...

Horizontally the cells get aligned by the table's head: {cl}. Left  
cell is centred, right cell is flushright or left-aligned. You can  
make it {|c|l|} to see vertical 'margin lines.' \hline would add  
horizontal 'margin lines.'



Some day we may discover how to make magnets that can point in any
