      <div data-role = "page">

         <div data-role = "main" class = "ui-content">
            <form method = "get" action = "jquery_mobile/demo2.php">
               <fieldset class = "ui-field-contain">
                  <label for = "test">Multiple Select</label>
                  <select id = "test" multiple = "multiple" data-native-menu = "false" name = "test[]">
