XML is a simplified form of SGML (standard generalized markup language) intended for documents that are published on the Web. XML sitemap is used normally because it is crawling friendly, it helps search engine crawlers and internet users to find the information and content they are looking for, whereas HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is the standard markup language for creating web pages and web applications, basically designed for web users and it is placed on the home page at footer of the website which is static for all pages.
