I'd like to suggest some other sites to add to this one.
The best secondary structure prediction for proteins at CASP3 was
PSIPRED:
	http://globin.bio.warwick.ac.uk/psipred/

A new site that does search, multiple alignment, fold recognition, and
secondary structure prediction for proteins with one easy interface is ours:
	http://ww.cse.ucsc.edu/research/compbio/HMM-apps/T99-query.html
(I think that our secondary structure predictor may now be better than
PSIPRED, with about 78% correct prediction, but I understand PSIPRED
has made improvements over the last couple of years also.)

These sites might be useful to add to "Online Analysis Tools" suite.
