    Hey It has very simple logic... We are creating HTML site map for user. it means user can easily find his/her required page through HTML site map. and we are creating XML site map for crawler. crawler can read HTML site map but XML is Stronger as compare to HTML. so we are using XML site map for crawler.

    Both the HTML ans XML sitemap have there own importance.

    Html site map guiding peoples and XML sitemap is used by crawler.

    Both sitemap are good for a website but the purpose is different Xml sitemap we mainly create for search engines to get all pages indexed fast and Html sitemap we create for user that the user can find all pages easily.

    For your wordpress blog, get best XML sitemap plugin which support multisite functions too. It generates google sitemapindex, submit it to webmaster tool and for audience in your site, you can personalize. Either you can display only pages of your site , posts or categories. So there is no point in wasting time for HTML sitemaps.

    I think, the best sitemap is in .txt format. It's small, fast, and easy to be generated.

    Xml site maps are better as compared to html. Xml site maps are easier to handle many pages. It also help search engines for frequent indexing.

    Supposed you can have both. XML is for submitting to search engine, and search engine use that to tell what pages are on your website. HTML is for human, when visitor comes, they can see HTML sitemap and knows all the pages that you have on your site, and get to any page just by a single click in the sitemap (or a few clicks, if you have multi-tier sitemap)

    HTML site map for your own web-site and XML is for Google page Indexing.

    According to me both site maps are useful for any website because XML site map is used by search engine and HTML site map is used by users.

    With XML sitemap you can tell the search engine crawler about the links in your website. It is easy for indexation. Whereas HTML sitemap is easy for the users to view all the available links in a page

    Both plays their own role. We use xml sitemap for indexing site inner pages in search engines, and html sitemap for user.

    I think XML site maps is very better for crawling your website.
