Why 4 different site maps?
« on: May 16, 2008, 12:02:27 PM »
Just started with Sitemap Generator today and wondered why four different site maps are generated and what can they be used for? I presume *.xml is the standard one to send to Google etc and *.html can be used for visitors to my site, but not sure about the others.

Ps Thanks for your great service.
