# Which is the correct XOR Gate Symbol

I'm confused between 2 XOR gate symbols, they have a minor difference but I'd still like to know if they truly are identical.

One looks like -

The other, like

Notice, how for one of them the input lines are connected all the way and for the other, it's not. Are they both identical, as I suspect or is there something I'm not aware about?

This is akin to asking if $$B$$ and $$\mathcal{B}$$ are really the same letter and, if not, which is correct. It makes no difference.
