Home Forums Other Question about font-sizing with REMs Reply To: Question about font-sizing with REMs


@noob, do you get what @traq is saying? He’s wondering why you would needlessly convert px to em. If 15em = 15px, just use px and have one less layer.

This reminds me of someone on these boards that used variables in SASS like this:

$00ccff : #00ccff;

It wasn’t quite that bad. It was more like this

$bl001 : #00ccff;

But the point is, if you’re going to use non-human friendly variable names for colors… just use the hex code. Do you get what he’s saying?
