    These two code snippets are synonymous with one another; they both do the same thing, just in different ways.

    @JackyS Thanks dude. Now i got confused, what different ways they can perform 'external nofollow' and 'nofollow'? hence they both are 'nofollow' only?

    Yes, they are both "nofollow". Whether a link indicates external nofollow or just nofollow.
