Resizing a Google Map Info Window

My website incorporates an API v3 Google Map at www.mauitradewinds.com/location.htm.  An info window with text "Maui Tradewinds" is supposed to appear when visitors click or tap the map location marker, and up until recently this worked on a desktop, iPad and iPhone.   iPhone visitors are redirected to www.mauitradewinds.com/m_location.htm 

I just noticed, on iPad and iPhone, that the info window text is incomplete ("Maui____"  instead of Maui Tradewinds).  However, if I include "<br>" between "Maui" and "Tradewinds", then both words are displayed, on separate lines. I've no clue as to what caused this change, and I'm an amateur at coding.  Perhaps this is related to Apples' recent release of iOS 8,  which I have just installed on my iPad and iPhone.  In any event, the issue seems related to the size of the Info Window.  If I can make the window wider, I believe the entire text will be displayed with iOS devices.  

Please advise how to control the size of the Info Window.

It's to do with the width of the element and the overflow settings:

<div style="overflow: auto; width: 98px; height: 24px;">
    <div class="" style="overflow: hidden;width: 100px;">Maui Tradewinds</div>
</div>

change this to

<div style="overflow: hidden; width: 100px; height: 24px;">
    <div class="" style="overflow: hidden;width: 100px;">Maui Tradewinds</div>
</div>
