Help! The footer and some other text blocks look perfectly fine when in bigger desktop screens + mobile screen view, but start to overlap and look weird when viewed in screens sized in between those 2 extremes (particularly, on an iPad tablet and a small laptop screen). What code can I use to make sure it keeps a max width of 100% regardless of screen size? Any help appreciated. Thanks.

The problem is quite simple, you have overlapping blocks on the desktop version, so when the text exceeds the width of the block it breaks to a new line, and instead of pushing the content below it down it overlaps.

I would suggest placing more text into the each text block where possible, and making sure that you limit the overlapping of blocks and this won't happen.
