<!DOCTYPE html>
      <title>Filterable collapsible set</title>
      <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width, initial-scale = 1">
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.css">
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></script>

         <input data-type = "search" id = "searchForCollapsibleSet">
      <div data-role = "collapsibleset" data-filter = "true" data-inset = "true" 
         id = "collapsiblesetForFilter" data-input = "#searchForCollapsibleSet">
         <div data-role = "collapsible" data-filtertext = "India">
            <ul data-role = "listview" data-inset = "false">
               <li>New Delhi</li>
         <div data-role = "collapsible" data-filtertext = "Australia">
            <ul data-role = "listview" data-inset = "false">
         <div data-role = "collapsible" data-filtertext = "United Kingdom">
            <h3>United Kingdom</h3>
            <ul data-role = "listview" data-inset = "false">
