My associates are good coders (as far as I know), but designers and
grammarians they're not—especially when it comes to the ESL folks. We end
up wasting a lot of time and effort with their "code first, design later"
mentality, which invariably delays user manual additions and SW delivery
dates as we massage iteration after iteration of the UI. I'm wanting to be
proactive and suggest a procedure whereby a written GUI spec, complete with
proposed screenshot(s), needs prior managerial approval *before* any coding
begins. Along with this the coder would have to submit an electronic copy
of screenshot to me, so I have a head start on shoehorning it into the
pre-existing user manual.

So, any tips on easy-to-use GUI mockup software for coders?
