The best 2ry structure predictor at CASP3 was clearly Jones's PSIPRED:

A close second was our predictor, which was not then on the web.
We have since improved our predictor considerably and put it on the web.
We hope to beat PSIPRED at CASP4 with the predictor at
	http://www.cse.ucsc.edu/research/compbio/HMM-apps/T99-query.html
Currently, this predictor is about 77-78% correct, and does a good job
of knowing when it is inaccurate.

(We have some more experimental secondary-structure predictors that we
hope will be working by the time CASP4 starts also---we have even
bigger hopes for them.)
