    I thinks so both are good but XML sitemap is more beneficial then HTML sitemap. For SEO purpose it is very important.

    Hey you are using Wordrepss then use the Google XML sitemaps plugin "http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-sitemap-generator/" It is very good and automatically creates the sitemap. Its highly recommended to use xml sitemap as user can see all the posts from Archives pages.

    I also using this plugin and happy with its works. Its really great plugin which already downloaded more than - 4,930,821 times.

    create a XML sitemap for search engines.
    use "Google XML Sitemaps" wordpress plug and it will generate a special XML sitemap which will help search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing and Ask.com to better index your blog.

    I think small websites having less than 10 web pages not essentially need a site map.

    am i right ?

    As everyone is preferring XML sitemap over HTML sitemap and few also mentioned XML sitemap is crawler friendly; is that mean CRAWLER don't/cant read or CRAWLS HTML sitemap? IF CRAWLER can read read/CRAWLS HTML sitemap then why XML sitemap is proffered or (some of you said better for crawler)?
