Nah, that one's for you upstarts after TI wussed out and went with those
annoying European standard logic symbols.  Back in 1976 they drew it right:

I haven't used 74 series logic chips in a long time for performing logic.
Yesterday I needed to convert a 3.3V digital signal to a 5V digital signal
in a one off circuit, and one of the old 74 series logic chips with their
TTL input thresholds came to mind.  That's when I realized the labels on
those drawers were so old that most of them had dried out and fallen off.  I
was just going thru the inventory and making up new labels when I read your
message.  I also discovered I have about 20 74121 in stock.  Not 74LS121 or
74HC121, just 74121.  I'm pretty sure the last time I bought any of those
was in college in the last 1970s when the TI TTL Data Book was essential
equipment for every EE.  http://www.embedinc.com/temp/ttl.jpg.

Yeah, I cannot stand those square block logic gates. What is wrong with the
old style and,  or and xor symbols. The IEC symbols for small items just
don't make a lot of sense ...

Alan (who occasionally has to refer to the standard when setting up symbols
in ECAD ...)
