Does a red equal sign mean something is incorrect?

I am trying to run the javac Introductions.java but when I press enter, my compiler is giving me this message Picked up JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS: -Xmx128m Picked up _JAVA_OPTIONS: -Xmx128m

Also, my equal signs are red...not sure if this is a bad thing?

If you notice in the Teachers Notes the Message:

"JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS: -Xmx128m Picked up _JAVA_OPTIONS: -Xmx128m"

Is not an error and you should just ignore it. And the Red equal signs DO NOT mean that something is wrong that is just the color of the syntax in Java.
