Hi Dean 😃

> We're not requiring them to do this.

You had written "a page needs to know how to avoid the rounded corners and notch" - that sure sounded as if each page is required to know how to avoid the rounded corners and the notch.

> By default we'll avoid the notch by insetting everything. However, if the author wants their page to use the full area, they can opt in but then need to avoid the corners.

Thus on/beside each page that doesn't opt in (as the myriads of existing unmaintaned web pages ever created up to now) there will two thick white bars, correct?


Although the white bars are stylable (albeit in a limited way it seems https://twitter.com/thomasfuchs/status/907770902338785280 ), and although though there might be CSS in the future for intentionally-fuller-area pages for dealing with the notch, ideally web developers wouldn't have to bother with Apple's notch or Apple's white bars - at least in my opinion.
