dblatex will also output TeX, which seems to be able to be
converted into all sorts of different output formats.
I've no idea how to get from here to there, or whether
it's a good idea but TeX is for typesetting,
a lot different from PDF, and to the uninformed
(like me) it sounds like typesetting is just the
sort of thing you do to switch between different
screen sizes/"looks".
