It may or it may not. It's a crap shoot.
I just did, with my own reformatted Chaos Chronicles omnibus. I tested it on Aldiko on Android, Nook, iBooks on ipad, Kindle (various), Sony, ADE on PC, and maybe something else I've forgotten. It looks good on all. I tested night mode, and I tested changing font sizes. It's not a crap shoot, but you do have to take care with certain things. (Okay, some things are a crap shoot with any ebook, because not all devices display things the same way.)

I don't think I tested font changes, though, except in the Kindle multi-device emulator.

Edit: Okay, I just tested font changes and night mode in ibooks. A-okay.

And -- to yank this back to the point of the topic -- it did require (for the benefit of Aldiko and Nook) having the centered styles tweaked in CSS because that was something Calibre is not set up to do.
