Jeph:
Here are two examples to get you started, though, it might be easier to just place an exported .gph or .eps version of the figure above the formatted table in a Word document and use an image capture software or export the page as an image/pdf.

You can tweak the positioning of the text under a figure or written to a file, but it will take some patience. 
The code below requires you to install the rtfutil suite of adofiles from Roger Newson (findit rtfutil)

*! watch for wrapping issues in the code below !*

rtfclose `handle1'
**note: this lines up for me using MS Word 2008 on Mac, but may not line up on other configurations**
