Can anyone tell me the difference between the AcceptAll method and the AcceptAllRevisions method?
I have looked on MSDN and their explanations are:

AcceptAll - accepts all tracked changes in the specified document

AcceptAllRevisions - accepts all tracked changes in the document or range.

I have found that when using these methods, from a Perl program by the way, that any tracked changes within the footnotes are only accepted by using AcceptAllRevisions.

Does anyone know:
a.  why are there two methods
b.  what are the differences
