I have set HTML:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
<link href="http://code.jquery.com/mobile/latest/jquery.mobile.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/styles1.css" type="text/css" />
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.min.js"></script>
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/mobile/latest/jquery.mobile.min.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
<div data-role="page">

<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
<div class="row-of-icons">
<a class="icon-alone" href="#Email"><span data-icon="phone" aria-hidden="true"></span><!--<span>E-mail</span>--></a>
<a class="icon-alone" href="#Phone"><span data-icon="email" aria-hidden="true"></span><!--<span>Phone</span>--></a>
</div>


</div>
</body>
</html>

CSS:
.ui-icon-phone:after {
background-image: url("..(images/iphone_16x16.png");
background-size: 18px 18px;
}
.ui-icon-mail:after {
background-image: url("..(images/mail_16x16.png");
background-size: 18px 18px;
}
[data-icon]:before {
font-family: icons;
content: attr(data-icon);
speak: none;
}
.icon-alone {
display: inline-block;
}
.icon-block {
display: block;
}
.ui-body-c .ui-link, .ui-body-c .ui-link:hover {
color: #00FF00;
text-decoration: none;
font-size: 2.5em;
}


What is the correct way to see icons like phone and E-mail?

.ui-icon-phone:after {
background-image: url("..(images/iphone_16x16.png");
background-size: 18px 18px;
}

Does that work? I would have thought that a background doesn't show up unless it's a background of something. Even if the something is only an &emsp;.

I'm not sure.
Check official link jQuery Mobile 1.4:
[jquerymobile.com...]

.ui-icon-myicon:after {
background-image: url("path/to/your-icon.png");
background-size: 18px 18px;
}

<rant>
The link tag does NOT have a closing / after it.
The <br> tag does NOT have a closing / after it.
Quit doing that.

In HTML4.01 it's invalid. In HTML5, you can do it but 1) it's meaningless, 2) browsers ignore it and 3) it takes up useless space and bandwidth on the wire.

So there is no point in doing it that way so ... quit doing that.
