Need help with displaying generic elements across page

I am working out of a template called bootstrap. Mainly because I want the page to display well on multiple devices and their template seems forgiving, moreso with mobile though.

1. I need to clean up the pages on desktop obviously. I need the "panels" on the linked page to be more even.

2. So I'm wondering should I abandon their template for this page? I like the way the mobile site displays.

3. unordered lists demolish the layout. adding a - before each subdivision creates an error if the text is displayed on two lines (this varies by the device width displaying it, obviously.).

Thanks

The page is full of structural errors.  Trying to work anything cross-device with structural errors is a losing game.  Sooner or later the page collapses and does not work well for any device.

this is the output from the HTML validator:
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fconutils.com%2Fdist%2Faffiliatedsystems%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0

I suggest you start there before you try to make any decisions about modifying the layout.

I wanted to thank you again. I need to start validating earlier in the construction process; it's already made a noticeable difference on the page.

I may keep some errors for different reasons but this is definitely what I should do in the beginning.

I validate every time I change something, and I try to avoid hacks, even the ones that don't cause an error.  The amount of time it takes to validate is miniscule compared to the time it can take to make a page behave cross-browser/cross-device when it is not to standard.  Sometimes a strange behavior that does not appear related to the validation errors will "fix itself" when the validation is cleaned up; so I generally start there.
