5) sharpen (although I lost the 'formula' somone published) <-USM 100%/0.5 to 0.9/0
6) resize to 1024x600 (or so) <-light sharpen again after resizing (50%/0.5/0)
7) save as jpg for 'publication'.
Ok, now I'm wondering, I assume we are starting off with a RAW file, but why wouldn't you just convert to a jpg first?
