Golden Gray for Drupal 4.7

I've ported William Pramana's fine Golden Gray Wordpress theme to Drupal 4.7 for a site I'm creating. It was a quick job so there are likely issues but it works reasonably well. It has been tested with Firefox 1.5, Opera 8, and IE 6 on Drupal 4.7.0-beta3 with a modicum of modules (forum, blog, image, and other core modules) enabled.

Captcha fun

After making several revisions of the Drupal Captcha module, I've ended up with something I am satisfied with. My first attempt added support for comments and other content nodes and created a more complex image than the previous version. However, I was not satisfied.

Captcha images are not a very friendly solution for visually impaired users so I revised my captcha module to use a text based challenge response system. While I would agree that this could be circumvented by intelligent parsing (and I expect that it will happen if this method becomes popular), the same is true with OCR and images. So, I'm going to stick with the text method for a while and see how it goes.
