    XML & HTML both are important for a website. XML for search engines and HTML for Users.

    Both are good the only difference is this that XML is for search engines and HTML is for Users.

    When I saw that thread I wanted to post the same answer ;).
    And I have something to add. An HTML sitemap should be put in the footer (or anywhere else) for users. But actually if your site is not large and has very easy navigation I guess there is no need in that kind of a sitemap.
    On the other hand, an XML sitemap is a must for any website. It should be created and set in the Google Webmaster tools and in your robots.txt file.

    Both of them has its own importance.
    XML sitemap is used for both web crawlers and users . And HTML helps users to find all pages of website.

    I think both sitemaps are important. XML sitemap helps search engine for crawling all pages of sitemap where as html site map helps user to get detail information about your sitemap. And creating sitemap is not difficult process. With the help of Google sitemap generator, u can create both sitemap easily.

    XML sitemap helps Search Engine to get our site. HTML sitemap helps user.

    I also prefer xml sitemap...because google crawls your site fast by crawling xml sitemap not a html sitemap.
