      <title>Controlgroup Horizontal</title>
      <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width, initial-scale = 1">
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "">
      <script src = ""></script>
      <script src = ""></script>

      <div data-role = "controlgroup" data-type = "horizontal">
         <a href = "#" class = "ui-btn ui-icon-home ui-btn-icon-left">Left Icon</a>
         <a href = "#" class = "ui-btn ui-icon-home ui-btn-icon-right">Right Icon</a>
      <div data-role = "controlgroup" data-type = "horizontal">
         <a href = "#" class = "ui-btn ui-icon-home ui-btn-icon-top">Top Icon</a>
         <a href = "#" class = "ui-btn ui-icon-home ui-btn-icon-bottom">Bottom Icon</a>
