Hi Jason,
As i understand table-cell the only children allowed for this area are blocks.
And blocks are vertical aligned(western block progression direction).
But I think that blocks allow inlines and inline-containers as children so 
you have to put your images there
if you want them to progress horizontally.

Hope that makes sense and helps you
