  It isn't so much of wether or not I can, but rather that I have to if I want 
to place it right. I usually just use \tempo because it already goes where it 
should, is small enough to generally not cause collision problems for me, and 
I still have not been able to figure out what property the padding applies to 
(I know, it's waiting for me in the e-mail archives).
  In any case, tempo expressions are, in my experiences, very common; I can't 
seem to recall the manual explaining the right way to fully typeset these. 
Examples of some control are scattered about the manual, but most musicians I 
know would be completely clueless about what professionals do.
  The important thing right now is that LilyPond does have a way that I can 
make things look right (or however I desire) so thank you again.
  Since you are always so helpful Mats, do you have suggested readings to try 
to help me straighten out my sense of the various object types; I seem to mix 
them up horribly anymore.  =(
