<div data-role="footer"> <div data-role="navbar"> <ul> <li><a href="header_and_footer__with_navbar.html" class="ui-btn-active">Home</a></li> <li><a href="header_and_footer__with_navbar_credits.html">Credits</a></li> <li><a href="header_and_footer__with_navbar_contact.html">Contact</a></li> </ul> </div> </div...
