      <ul id='mbtnav'>
        <li>
          <a href='#'>Home</a>
        </li>
        <li>
          <a href='#'>About</a>
       </li>
        <li>
          <a href='#'>Contact</a>
        </li>
  <li>
           <a href='#'>Sitemap</a>
            <ul>
                <li><a href='#'>Sub Page #1</a></li>
