What good softwares are there for designing website layout mockups?

Instead of using pen and paper, in the initial first stage I would like to use a software for the drafting of a webpage's all webpages.

Are there any softwares that are particularly useful for this, such as, for example, MS Visio 2010 Premium or Professional version?

I have a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

All those look good; I used to use Dreamweaver(waay back when), but you can quite literally use whatever software you want, from Photoshop to Excel to...Blender! Never had much luck w/Visio tho...it's *still* on my machine, even after scouring it w/Microsoft's own custom uninstall tool!(Why am I still surprised...??)

However, I think you'll enjoy the extensive tools available to you in Adobe Illustrator. :-)
