Positive and negative logic gates

This is a really basic topic but it's getting me confused. The truth table for any gate remains the same for both positive and negative logic, right? like for a NOR gate the truth table would always be,

x    y    x nor y
F    F       T
F    T       F
T    F       F
T    T       F


for both positive and negative logic. right?
Then for a negative logic nor gate the truth table would be,

 x       y        x nor y
1(F)    1(F)       0(T)
1(F)    0(T)       1(F)
0(T)    1(F)       1(F)
0(T)    0(T)       1(F)


now look at this. the table for negative logic nor says 1 nor 0 = 0. So what am i missing?
thanks..

• Your link points to some books that I don't have on my shelf, and if I had I would not look in them without you providing a page number. The truth table of a gate remains constant when it is expressed in high and low (in the electrical sense), but when you assign high==0 you will get one truth table, you will get a different table when you assign high==1.

• the link points to pg 64 of 'Digital logic and computer design' by M. Morris Mano on Google Books. The link works just fine, i don't think you'll need to have it on your shelf. I updated with a cleaner link anyway. :) So, if the truth table is the same, my point is right? the 2nd truth table is the right one for negative logic nor gate? What about the one in the book? is it in some different notation? Commented Apr 1, 2013 at 16:02
• "the link points to pg 64" maybe on your PC, but not on mine. Commented Apr 1, 2013 at 17:04
• This is a well known Google Books phenomenon, of pointing browsers in different geographical locations to different views, based on Google's (mis)interpretations of local copyright laws. In this case the book in question hasn't actually been out of copyright for 150 years so they may be legally justified; however it does make helping the questioner harder. The author's name is ringing alarm bells at the back of my mind from a recent post here (can't find it atm) so I wouldn't eliminate the possibility of a mistake in the book.

• i'm sorry.. didn't know about that.. And Wouter's answer made it clear.. the book isn't wrong, the truth table isn't wrong, i was interpreting the models wrong.. thanks :) Commented Apr 1, 2013 at 18:02
