The function for ending a line drawing is given as endPath(), but later on--pages 13 and 16, for example--it seems to have changed to closePath(). Are both correct? Since the function for starting a line drawing is beginPath(), endPath() makes more linguistic sense. Is there an openPath() that is more logically paired with closePath()?

Note from the Author or Editor:
The references to endPath() were in error; the correct function names are beginPath() for starting a path and closePath() for ending/closing a path.

Apologies for the error.

It looks to me like the comments "// First draw horizontal line" and "// Then draw vertical line" need to trade places, as do the words "horizontal" and "vertical" in the first sentence on page 17.

second sentence

The sentence start with "WIth" instead of "With".

paragraph beginning with "Now when"

In the first sentence of the paragraph, "pressed" should be "presses".
