    var canvas;   
    var context;   
    var drawingUtil;   
    var isDrawing = false;
    var accountId = '';   
    var prevX, prevY, currX, currY = 0;   
    var accountId;

    function DrawingUtil() {    
        isDrawing = false;   
        canvas.addEventListener("mousedown", start, false);   
        canvas.addEventListener("mousemove", draw, false);   
        canvas.addEventListener("mouseup", stop, false);   
        canvas.addEventListener("mouseout", stop, false);   
        canvas.addEventListener("touchstart", start, false);   
        canvas.addEventListener("touchmove", draw, false);   
        canvas.addEventListener("touchend", stop, false);    
        w = canvas.width;
        h = canvas.height;   

    function start(event) {    
        isDrawing = true;    
        prevX = currX;    
        prevX = currY;    
        currX = event.clientX - canvas.offsetLeft;    
        currY = event.clientY - canvas.offsetTop;
        context.fillStyle = "cadetblue";    
        context.fillRect(currX, currY, 2, 2);

    function draw(event) {    

        if (isDrawing) {
            prevX = currX;
            prevY = currY;
            currX = event.clientX - canvas.offsetLeft;
            currY = event.clientY - canvas.offsetTop;

            context.moveTo(prevX, prevY);
            context.lineTo(currX, currY);
            context.strokeStyle = "cadetblue";
            context.lineWidth = "2";

    function stop(event) {    
        if (isDrawing) {
            isDrawing = false;    

    function clearSign() {    

    canvas = document.getElementById("signatureCanvas");
    context = canvas.getContext("2d");
    context.strokeStyle = "black";   context.lineWidth = "2";
    drawingUtil = new DrawingUtil(canvas);

    function saveSignature() {    
        var strDataURI = canvas.toDataURL(); 
        strDataURI = strDataURI.replace(/^data:image\/(png|jpg);base64,/, "");
        var accId = location.href.split('=')[1];    
        accountId = accId;    
        var result = CaptureSignatureController.saveSignature(strDataURI, accId,

    function processResult(result) {    
        window.location.href = '/'+accountId;   

 <div class="container">
   <h1 class="labelCol vfLabelColTextWrap ">Record Signature:</h1>
   <canvas id="signatureCanvas" height="100px" width="350px" style="border: 3px solid antiquewhite; border-radius: 8px;" ></canvas>


Even if i add normal HTML tags anywhere inside the form i am not able to draw anything.

            <td width="5%"></td>
             <td width="15%"><apex:outputText >Upload</apex:outputText></td>

Can you please provide a little more details as to what is not working for you specifically?
I just copied your code, made a small change, added the table and set it up here:
For me, this works without any problems.

The only important thing is to change the order of <script> and <div> – as inside the <script> you are referring to the id signatureCanvas, which only ever exists after the browser has parsed the <div> part.

So just swap them, put the <script> at the end of your page and all should work fine.
