Web Design noob here: is there a standard strategy for planning XHTML/CSS structure before you start coding?

I'm still fairly new to CSS and XHTML, and my search-fu is failing me. I'm trying to figure out if there's any kind of standard - like a chart, or design mockup, or even just general advice - for planning out major structural elements of a website before you even start coding. So, for example, once the content and visual design is ready, how to determine which content elements will be or , or which elements will need to be emphasized throughout, or whatever.
I can just imagine myself assigning ids to what should be classes, etc., in the CSS once I start coding, and I'm trying to figure out the best way to organize all of this in advance so I'm not trying to do it while coding at the same time.
I hope this makes sense. Thanks!
