 The '''wp_loginout()''' function does not escape ampersands with the
 proper entity in the '''Logout''' url, failing the code to pass W3C
 (X)HTML validation.

 For instance, on my local test blog, it generates the following:
 {{{<a href="http://localhost/wp/wp-

 The ampersand between '''action=logout''' and '''redirect_to=%2Fhome%2F'''
 should be escaped with '''&amp;'''.
