    HTML sitemaps = for humans and search engines
    XML sitemaps = for search engines

    I think "websitetools" has already given you the answer. Let me say it deeply, HTML sitemaps and XML are both useful to help search engine to crawl your site. And, HTML can help your visitors have a comprehensive understanding of your site, while XML is specially desingned for search engine, once you have made some changes or add some new content, you can use XML sitemap to inform search engine.

    html sitemap file for user
    and xml sitemap file for search engine.
    so you need to create both type of sitemap file for your website.
