Hello, I am looking for HTML 5 and CSS 3 with some structure.  It appears that when I am working on my page, it does not sit well on different browsers with different screen sizes.  The top of my page looks normal, but the bottom half does not.  How do I solve this problem?  Many people will probably give the responsive design answer, but I have a mobile site that I am working on, so I do not want the mobile site to be responsive since I have a team working on the real deal for a mobile site.  Please chime in if you have the answer.  Thanks!

>I do not want the mobile site to be responsive since I have a team working on the real deal for a mobile site

The idea of responsive is not just for mobile.  I can't find it now, but I just saw an article that talked about over 1000 different viewports sizes. I just checked a site that has 77K visits and google analytics showed almost 800 different screen resolutions where one was 5760x1080.

Think about tablets.  If you have made the mistake of thinking of tablet users as mobile users, you could be in for trouble.  If you have ever used your tablet and been forced to use the "mobile" version meant for phones, it is a turn off.  And now some phones are as big as small tablets.

By building a separate mobile only experience, you do need to watch for displaying duplicate content.  

The heart of "responsive" is using media queries.  In your desktop version, you can specify the screen widths.   Personally, I find it is easier to use bootstrap http://getbootstrap.com/ and you can simply spec your classes to use medium and large screens if you want.
