+    <p>
+      A virtual memory balloon device is added to all Xen and KVM/QEMU
+      guests. It will be seen as <code>memballoon</code> element.
+      It will be automatically added when appropriate, so there is no
+      need to explicitly add this element in the guest XML unless a
+      specific PCI slot needs to be assigned.
+      <span class="since">Since 0.8.3, Xen, QEMU and KVM only</span>
