At a former web development company we used a visual development tool to produce placeholder pages with active navigation to help our customers visualize how their website would fit together as well as planning it ourselves.  I can't remember the name of the program though.  Anyone know of any good tools that'll do that sort of thing?

I don't really get what you mean by 'placeholder pages', but the industry standard for application design is UML.

It supports various types of modelling, but for presenting the workings of an application to clients I would recommend an Activity Diagram.

There are a ton of UML graphical programs some of which I listed in the Application Design Resources Sticky.

This UML 101 from IBM should get you started, Activity Diagrams are some of the easier diagrams to create.
