+    <ul id="toc"></ul>
+
+    <h2><a name="SnapshotAttributes">Snapshot XML</a></h2>
+
+    <p>
+      Attributes of libvirt snapshots are stored as child elements of
+      the <code>domainsnapshot</code> element.  At snapshot creation
+      time, only the <code>name</code> and <code>description</code>
+      elements are settable; the rest of the fields are informational
+      (and readonly) and will be filled in by libvirt when the
+      snapshot is created.
+    </p>
+    <p>
+      The top-level <code>domainsnapshot</code> element may contain
+      the following elements:
+    </p>
+    <dl>
+      <dt><code>name</code></dt>
+      <dd>The name for this snapshot.  If the name is specified when
+      initially creating the snapshot, then the snapshot will have
+      that particular name.  If the name is omitted when initially
+      creating the snapshot, then libvirt will make up a name for the snapshot.
+      </dd>
+      <dt><code>description</code></dt>
+      <dd>A human-readable description of the snapshot.  If the
+        description is omitted when initially creating the snapshot,
+        then this field will be empty.
+      </dd>
+      <dt><code>creationTime</code></dt>
+      <dd>The time this snapshot was created.  The time is specified
+      in seconds since the Epoch (i.e. Unix time).  Readonly.
+      </dd>
+      <dt><code>state</code></dt>
+      <dd>The state of the domain at the time this snapshot was
+      taken.  When the domain is reverted to this snapshot, the domain's state
+      will be set to whatever is in this field.  Readonly.
+      </dd>
+      <dt><code>parent</code></dt>
+      <dd>The parent of this snapshot.  This element contains exactly
+      one child element, name.  This specifies the name of the parent
+      snapshot of this snapshot, and is used to represent trees of
+      snapshots.  Readonly.
+      </dd>
+      <dt><code>domain</code></dt>
+      <dd>The domain that this snapshot was taken against.  This
+      element contains exactly one child element, uuid.  This
+      specifies the uuid of the domain that this snapshot was taken
+      against.  Readonly.
+      </dd>
+    </dl>
