File TAGS.all_files is meant to contain every HTML and *.ed file on www.gnu.org. The *.ed files can contain HTML fragments, and are used in converting documents formatted in Texinfo into HTML.

File TAGS is meant to contain the HTML and *.ed files on www.gnu.org that are not automatically generated by texi2html and is the file usually used by the webmasters.
