Example Using HTML Data Source

$('#faqList').simpleFAQ();

This is a simple example using existing HTML content. Note that the structure is relatively loose, although you need a container (in this case a "ul") and each FAQ needs a root node (our "li") with a question (with the proper question class) and an answer (with the proper answer class).

The classes can be changed using the options. Here is an example of the html for one of these FAQ nodes:

<li>
  <p class='question'>How can I get more help?</p>
  <div class='answer'>
    <p>
      If you can't find your answer here, feel free to send us an email
      any time. We will try to respond to your concern as soon as possible.
    </p>
    <p class='tags'>help, contact us, email</p>
  </div>
</li>
