Are there differences in how a brother and a sister pray? If so, is there a website I can go to and look at?

It would depend on what madhab (school of thought you follow), there is 4 schools of thought that contain rulings on how to do everything in Islam. The four schools are Hanafi, Shafi, Maliki, Hanbali. They are named after the scholars who founded them, what these scholars basically did is, analysed all the evidence from the Qur'an and hadith and derived rulings, they somtimes differed in their understanding of the texts and that's why they have different opinions to each other in certain areas. The question you raised is an example of an area where they differed.

I know in the Hanafi school of thought there is a difference in how the women pray. I guess the key question is what school of thought do you follow?
