There's no software specifically designed to work with wordpress, but the templates consists of php files, so any php editor would do the trick.

I have worked on my wordpress themes in notepad++ which has worked well for me.

You can try using a regular web design program like Dreamweaver or Nvu to code the designs then refer to the Wordpress Codex for Wordpress PHP tags to convert a regular web design to a wordpress compatible one.

Well, the best tool right know is new Dreamweaver CS5. It now has full support for CMS solutions but guess what, it's not free (not even near) :)

On the other hand you can always get a free template that has similar layout to one you are trying to make. Change is a little in PHP editor and then customize the design by working with CSS. That's the technique I used a lot. Then, when you have several of your own layouts than you can make wireframes and just make CSS for different designs.
