The following code shows how \tempo \markup can be used:


    \tempo 4=72
    \tempo \markup {
      \concat {
        \smaller \note #"4" #1
        " = ca. 66-72"
    \relative c' {
      c4 d e f g a b c


The first \tempo mark sets the speed as far as MIDI is concerned but the
markup from the second is displayed.  You can therefore customise its
appearance as much as you like.
