This just happens because the JavaScript grammar in TextMate isn't aware of a constant named “borderWidth”. The maintainer of that bundle is probably on this list and can add it. (Or you could add it yourself, but language grammars can be pretty intense.)

Yes, the code (in any language) will work if it's written correctly, regardless of how TextMate displays it.
