At least some people on this forum try to be helpful.

But I think what I really wanted to know is do RAW or, for that matter, Adobe RGB photos, have to be converted to sRGB before posting to the Web? And should I convert the photos before post-processing them, or convert to sRGB as a final step?

Consider developing the RAW in Adobe RGB (aRGB) to be one process who's purpose is to create a finished presentation.

Creating a JPG with a sRGB color space from any RAW would be a separate process.

So it's not quite the last step in developing - it's rather the first step in getting a copy from the RAW to post online, after all the developing is completed.
