A while ago, I managed to mess up Java on my computer. I got it working again, but we are stuck at version 1.6.2 (or is it just 6.2). Anyways, you can never assume that someone has the latest version of the JRE installed. My grandparents don't use their internet much, and so use DIAL-UP!!!!! I have no idea what version of the JRE they have, but it probably isn't up-to-date. I recommend using Java 5, as most of the common apis didn't change from 5 to 6, and there is a better likelihood of a user having at least v5.

I have Java 6, but I do believe Java 6 is able to use Java 5 stuff...

Correct. As long as you have the latest Java version, you should be able to run anything from previous versions as well.
