<!DOCTYPE html>
      <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width, initial-scale = 1">
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "">
      <script src = ""></script>
      <script src = ""></script>

      <div data-role = "page" id = "pageone" data-theme = "a">
         <div data-role = "panel" id = "panel1">
            <h2>This is Panel Header</h2>
            <p>You can close this panel by pressing the Esc key or by swiping.</p>
         <div data-role = "header">
         <div data-role = "main" class = "ui-content">
            <a href = "#" class = "ui-btn ui-btn-inline"> Default Button</a>
            <a href = "#" class = "ui-btn ui-btn-inline ui-btn-b">Black Button</a>

            <a href = "#" class = "ui-btn ui-icon-home ui-btn-icon-notext">Home</a>
            <a href = "#" class = "ui-btn ui-btn-b ui-icon-home ui-btn-icon-notext">Home</a>

            <a href = "#pop_demo" data-rel = "popup" class = "ui-btn ui-btn-b 
               ui-btn-inline">Click to open popup box</a>
            <div id = "pop_demo" data-role = "popup" data-theme = "a" class = "ui-content">
               <a href = "#" data-rel = "back" class = "ui-btn ui-btn-a ui-btn 
                  ui-icon-delete ui-btn-icon-notext ui-btn-right">Close</a>
