placing logout link in my functions.php file

I'm trying to insert a proper logout link inside my functions.php file in my wordpress site. However, what I have currently is not working. I have...
//customize header
remove_action('genesis_header', 'genesis_do_header');
add_action('genesis_header', 'child_do_header');
function child_do_header() {

if ( is_user_logged_in() ) {
echo '<style type=\'text/css\'>
.headertext_b {
color: #FFFFFF;
font-weight: bold;
font-style: italic;
font-size: 16px;
font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Verdana;
text-shadow: #002838 1px 1px;
}
table.header_bkg {
border-spacing:0;
padding: 0;
color: #FFFFFF;
}
.inputtext {
width: 128px;
height: 18px;
text-align: left;
margin: 0;
border: 0px;
background-color:transparent;
}
.formsubmit {

I see the logout link but when I hover over it, it says:

www.membersmix.com/ <?php echo wp_logout_url(home_url()); ?>

then when I click on it, it gives a 404 error.  I must the opening and/or closing php brackets around the link wrong?

No, you're not really constructing it correctly.

Try this instead:

echo "<a href='". wp_logout_url( home_url() ) ."' title='Logout'>Logout</a>";

Yep.

Remember that this is already a php file with a bunch of echo commands.  So when you want to add something to this file, you don't need <?php ?> brackets.  Just the echo command and use concatenation (the .) to separate text from PHP variables/functions.
