I see a <?> when trying to show flickr as data source

Hi,

I 'd greatly appreciate any help with this problem.

All I am trying to do is use the flickr sample that came with the distribution (sliverlight 3). All I did was change the user name to mine.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html>
 <head>
  <title>Slide.Show 2 | Flickr Sample</title>
  <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="../Default.css" />
 </head>
 <body class="light">
  <object type="application/x-silverlight-2" data="data:application/x-silverlight-2," width="640" height="480">
   <param name="background" value="#fff" />
   <param name="source" value="../ClientBin/Vertigo.SlideShow.xap" />
   <param name="initParams" value="ConfigurationProvider=LightTheme,DataProvider=FlickrDataProvider;UserName=jhva63;ApiKey=b45329018eafdf2a4f89ebf6fb2bf47a" />
   <a href="http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=124807" style="text-decoration: none;"><img src="http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=108181" alt="Get Microsoft Silverlight" style="border-style: none" /></a>
  </object>
 </body>
</html>

When i run this I get this  "<?>" displayed in the  main section of the control and exaclty the same for each of the three thumbnails ( as there are three pictures in this album). The titles for teh pictures are retrevived correctly from Flickr. Also, when I click on the "<?>"  it opens up a new browser and takes me to the correct picture on flickr.

Thanks again for your help.
