Larry, that's great.  I saw that in a screen shot that showed both of them installed.

Please add that link to Bugzilla issue 126130.  If you don't have an account there, let me
know and I will do it.

Oh, and MAC users need to know that they can have multiple JRE installations, so there is
no need to uninstall a later one or fear that installing a Java 6 VM is going to limit them
from the latest somehow.  Some reporters seem to get snarled up with that and bounce out of
the Java 6 update page because there is so much encouragement to go download the latest (Java
8 now).

Apache OpenOffice works with Java 8, but you also need to have Java 6 installed. Java 6 for

Macs was provided by Apple, not Oracle.
