Eric, I'm confused there. With your monitor calibrated you have its own 
profile installed. That might well fit into the sRGB but not
necessarily show all of it.
However I suspect that the weak link may be using a web browser to display 
the images. I don't know if that will match what is
happening in a colour management compliant prog. I may well be wrong there, 
I'm not expert on what the web browser does. I bet they
don't look the same as in photoshop. Are you previewing in the same browser 
on your machine?
Of course you have no control at all in what your client's computers 
(monitors) do to your images. Most would very likely not be
colour managed. I just recently looked at the LUG contest gallery on two 
different laptops. The pictures looked horrible vs on a
calibrated setup.

My system is calibrated by Spyder 2 and the deafult window color space is
sRGB IEC61966-2.1
