you only need a space between 1 and rem! :)

Wow - Hi Romain - I hope this message finds you well. I tried what you suggested and it didn't work. However, your insight allowed me to explore other options with the same vain.... it was there is no need for a space between px-to-rem(60px)


Thanks!!! :-)
