Can't figure this error out

I am playing with adding a GoogleMap to a website I am developing. 
Starting with maps.google.com/ using their API v2. From what I have read 
so far there documentation needs help (or I need more background) and 
their examples are buggie ie "&" where &amp; should be, etc.

But given that I have gotten it to work. My example is 

In a javascript function in the header the line that is causing problems is:

map.openInfoWindowHtml(map.getCenter(), "<img src='../jpg/Finian.jpg' 
width='64' height='80' alt='picture of Peter'><b>This is a picture of 
951 Greene Street</b>");

As written the code works with all browsers I checked. The Goole Maps 
function openWindowHtml() gets 2 values; a point on the map and a string 
of HTML code which is the content of the balloon created.

The problem is that I can't figure out how to get the line to validate. 
The error is "end tag for element "B" which is not open" pointing at the 
last ">". If I change the closing tag to "/>" then it validates but what 
is displayed is "... Street/>". If I change it to "</" it still works 
but doesn't validate.

Suggestions? Is it just a poorly formed function? poorly implemented? or 
did I miss something?

For context the map displays in a popup window if you start with 
/ATG/Calendar.html and click on the address. Forgive the foo picture.
