  I believe the "misconception" of always sharpening before JPEG comes from
the common down-sampling.  That is, most images start out big before being
down-sized for wwweb presentation ... and the usual advice is: ... down-size
... sharpen (to remove the softening side-effects of down-sampling) ... and
save as JPEG.
