Trouble is that this code doesn't work for TAR or GZ files which I am
trying to get online.


a few things may be worth checking:
* what is the value of auto-mode-alist when you hit C-h v auto-mode-alist
* does the *Messages* buffer (C-h e) show any errors when you open an
  archive file
* are you really opening TAR/GZ files as opposed to tar/gz?
