Prevalence of high-res screens -> zoomed-in web pages -> soft pictures

With the advent of high resolution LCD screens many people now use the zoom feature of their web browsers, otherwise the text is too small for them to comfortably read. Most current browsers also increase the size of images, to ensure that the layout of the page remains the same. This means that whatever effort one invests in getting optimal sharpening in post processing is lost on many (if not most) users when the image is displayed on the web.

Is there any way around this issue? Any HTML tag which can force the browser to display images without zooming, even if the user decided to zoom the page in to increase text size?
