@warriorlite though this thread is like 3 months old, I was just having a look at it and came up with this fiddle. Take a look at it. For the sake of simplicity, I have removed all the unwanted html and js. I have retained your .ui-btn class overrides, but fixed the issue of the of the text not appearing proper on the select box.
In case you have already fixed this, do let me know your solution.
