fasta identity calculation

which is the more valid way to calculate percentage identity
between two sequences of different length ?

Should we include the ends which are unmatched ?
GCG FASTA doesn't.   www.ebi.ac.uk FASTA does.

In this case a researcher wants to compare the identities
of several similar (around 95%) DNA sequences which have
different lengths.

Thanks in advance,
