Perhaps the easiest way to do this would be to define a macro at the top
of your org file:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#+MACRO: special-table #+HTML: <table><tr><td><img src="./images/icon.png"/></td><td<code>something</code></td></tr></table>
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Then, any time you wanted the html snippet to appear in the export, you
could place the following in your org file:


During export this will be replaced by the definition above. (At first I
wasn't sure this would work because of the extra comment notation in the
macro definition, but I tested it and it seemed to work fine.)
