It depends on the stage of development. I think it's important to do
something on paper at some point, and I prefer a "medium grade"
prototype which can be generated in something like OmniGraffle (Mac),
Inspiration (Mac/Windows), Dia (Windows), Visio (Win), Illustrator or
even Word/PowerPoint/Excel. I've had most success combining a flow
chart/outline with prototype screens.

I can say from experience that if you create a Web-based prototype
first, even if it's a wireframe, most people will be distracted by
aesthetic issues and not focus on functionality or content. Another
problem is that people may think you are presenting a final
information architecture (http://www.newfangled.com/prototyping_website_structure
) when of course, you're not.

If it's static (and not too "beautiful"), people seem to understand
that it is a tool for defining functinality/content and are more
comfortable messing with it. I always bring paper copies for people to
scribble on.

FYI - I've seen claims that you should always present pencil drawings
only, but I prefer something digital so that edits and versions are
easier to track. I think what's important is that the client feels
comfortable scribbling on your prototype (I provide copies). In any
case, it's still an iterative process.

My two cents.
