Cannot run morpho under JDK1.1.8

"Error loading class edu/ucsb/nceas/morpho/framework/ClientFramework: Bad
major version number"

target 1.1" switch, as described in following Sun forum:

Primary reason for support for Java JRE 1.1.8 is for Macintosh OS 9. Apple is
strongly pushing for adaption of OS X which supports JRE 1.3. At this point we
have decided to not spend the time to support JRE 1.1.9 (i.e. Mac OS 9) and just
support JRE 1.3 (i.e. Mac OS X).
