Hi Jeanne, With "functional" I mean something like a working application with flow minus any validation/verification etc.
For example, on a login page if I click 'Login' button after entering my user/password, next page to be displayed be, say, home page. From there if I click on any link, a new page be displayed. All these pages will be static, with no validation/verification or no/minimal business logic.
This, I think, can be achieved in plain HTML/CSS, although it would be painfully time consuming.

That's what we do. It's not as time consuming as it sounds though. This work has to be done anyway since we are coverting it into a JSP. Also, it gives the users a view of what it will look like as opposed to requiring a lot of imagination to see what it will look like.
i used wsad for my prototype-an eventual j2ee web-mq-cics application.
there is a free trial version.
in my organization, designers love the lotus notes designer. they did their prototypes on it; and as ive seen on production codes, they even used in during development. these are j2ee applications. i dont know though if you can get lotus notes designer trial version; but you can search.
