  5.     StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();  
  6.     SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(delegate   
  7.     {  
  8.         using(SPSite site = new SPSite(siteId))   
  9.         {  
  10.             using(SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb(webId))   
  11.             {  
  12.                 SPList list = web.Lists.TryGetList("News"); /*Create the list*/  
  13.                 if (list != null)   
  14.                 {  
  15.                     foreach(SPListItem item in list.Items)   
  16.                     {  
  17.                         sb.AppendLine("<li>");  
  18.                         sb.AppendLine("<div>");  
  19.                         sb.AppendLine(item.Title); /*Get the title column*/  
  20.                         sb.AppendLine("</div>");  
  21.                         sb.AppendLine("</li>");  
  22.                     }
