      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></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">
            <button class = "ui-btn">Button</button>
            <p>Click on the button to open Panel.</p>
            <a href = "#panel1" class = "ui-btn ui-btn-inline">Open Panel</a>
            <p>List View:</p>
            <ul data-role = "listview" data-autodividers = "true">
               <li><a href = "#">India</a></li>
               <li><a href = "#">England</a></li>
               <li><a href = "#">Srilanka</a></li>
            <a href = "#popup_menu" data-rel = "popup" data-transition = "slidedown" 
               class = "ui-btn ui-btn-inline ui-icon-home ui-btn-icon-left ui-btn-a">
               Click to see menu items</a>
            <div data-role = "popup" id = "popup_menu" data-theme = "a">
               <ul data-role = "listview">
                  <li data-role = "list-divider">Select your choice</li>
                  <li><a href = "#">India</a></li>
                  <li><a href = "#">Srilanka</a></li>
                  <li><a href = "#">Australia</a></li>
