{ <c' \tweak font-size #-3 e'>1
<c'' \tweak font-size #-3 e''> }
produces two chords with two semibreves each, the one normal-sized, the other smaller. The attached output from 2.19.3 shows that they are (left-/right-)aligned as if they had stems. This looks ill-balanced, in my eyes they should rather be center-aligned (and I might say I've already seen this in printed music, but it's not like I could give an example or confirm that it's authoritative in any way...). If I understood it correctly, chord notes have invisible stems, even if no stem is printed, which would serve as an explanation. However, the behaviour is the same with two voices instead of a chord, when there is no stem at all:

<< e'1 \\ { \override NoteHead. font-size = #-3 c'1 } >>

Just didn't want to leave it unmentioned :-)
Best regards,


P.S. Forgot to point out the similarity to issue 3543 <http://code.google.com/p/lilypond/issues/detail?id=3543> with harmonic notes.
