You can display the theme for collapsible and split buttons using the data-theme attribute.

<!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 = "page1">
         <div data-role = "header">
         <div data-role = "main" class = "ui-content">
            <ol data-role = "listview" data-inset = "true" data-theme = "b">
               <li data-theme = "a"><a href = "#">India</a></li>
               <li data-theme = "b"><a href = "#">Srilanka</a></li>
               <li data-theme = "a"><a href = "#">Australia</a></li>
               <li data-theme = "b"><a href = "#">England</a></li>
            <p>Collapsible List:</p>
            <div data-role = "collapsible" data-theme = "a" data-content-theme = "b">
               <h2>Collapsible List</h2>
               <ul data-role = "listview">
                  <li><a href = "#">India</a></li>
                  <li><a href = "#">Srilanka</a></li>
                  <li><a href = "#">Australia</a></li>
         <div data-role = "footer">
