In the case of Smugmug or Zenfolio, I have no choice.  The images air going to be resized.

You can’t just send them the images sized for what you want (multiple times)?

Whether you agree with the way I want to do it or not, please answer my question about how the sharpening works. 

What outstanding question have I not answered? As to exactly how the sharpening works, I'm not at liberty to disclose anything other than how to use it.

[...]For printing, I get better results in Qimage...whether you agree or not. 

But I do need to do print sharpening some place and it is easiest to do on export from LR.

Hi John,

Although Jeff did answer your question about display ('screen') sharpening, indeed display pixels are display pixels (although a matte display might need a bit more sharpening, I'm also not sure on which basis the built-in solutions were founded), I also do agree that for high quality output there is more than LR alone.

Since display pixels are relatively low resolution, one cannot sharpen display pixels too much without introducing visible artifacts, such as halo. So in that sense, it's what-you-see-is-what-you'll-get, which is more or less what Jeff said.

However, there is indeed more to that story ..., there are different ways to tweak those pixels into suggesting higher resolution, without artifacts showing too obviously. Look at the attached examples which are pretty well downsampled with ImageMagick without, and with 100, 200, and 300% deconvolution sharpening, added.

Given your reference to Qimage, it may also be useful to look at some prior threads (here and here) on the general subject.

Cheers,
Bart
