I think my original problem was a caused by myself being in a zombie state 
working too late at night where I went into windows explorer window and 
copied the path for the JRE's (e.g. Ctrl-C in the address bar) and pasted 
the path straight into my ant.properties file "without thinking".

So the instructions are currently correct (using forward slashes) but 
maybe it would be worth having a note/example for windows users (e.g. 
showing examples like the ones above) to avoid any confusion. 

Thanks everyone for responding.
