    I'm pretty sure most people would say to design the layout first, otherwise you would be coding off the top of your head. It's better to have a plan.

    you shouldn't just code something when you don't have a layout. it just like a master plan or a blueprint.

    If the layout is simple and been confirm, we can directly code it without wasted time. It require design mock, when we not sure the layout and need further approval.

    The 960 Grid System is delivered as a standard CSS file you can include on your website and contains all the code necessary to effortlessly place content the way you sketched it out on the printed 960 grid. You can download and print the grid for the 960 Grid System (PDF format) and use it to sketch your website layout, there are also Adobe Photoshop grids you can download too

    It's much better and convenient if you design the layout first so you won't have a hard time in coding. :)

    I've always had better success designing the layout first. Otherwise you just waste time trying to design by coding (which takes a lot longer)

    this is a project so at first you decide what you must do and only then you do it, the ides to decide how the site will look in the process of coding is on 100% wrong!

    Change design in photoshop is easier than change code in Dreamweaver especially for those complicated site e.g. CMS site.
