Lilypond has configurable paper size and margins.  This was sufficient for me 
to produce a short collection of hymns that is readable on a small e-book 
reader without scaling.

Depending on the intended use, there are other ways of saving space for even 
smaller screens.
* reduce the output to one staff with selected parts (put other parts in a 
separate file or separate sections of the book)
* unfold all verses so that there is only one line of lyrics (assuming you will 
never print the e-book version)

My little project was preempted before I tried those latter ideas, but I was 
planning to include some hyperlinks to skip verses quickly.  I thought it would 
be nice to have them in a column along one side of the display, but I’m not 
sure how that might be accomplished.
