I'm guessing you meant "_if_ it would"?

It should.  Lilypond is extremely good in the details.  Take a look at 
one of the PDFs on http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.1/examples.html and try 
zooming in as far as you can on e.g. a flat sign or slur.  (They must 
have spent weeks on that slur code.)

Output from Sibelius would probably stand up to that kind of close 
inspection, but that from Finale or Encore wouldn't.  In fact Han-Wen 
(of Lilypond) was suggesting to me that it might be better to have a 
printout of some fine detail blown up huge rather than a big sheet of 
music.  He has a point.
