An example

    window.onload = function ()
        var canvas  = document.getElementById("cvs");
        var context = canvas.getContext('2d');

        // Translate by half a pixel - this makes lines look crisp
        context.translate(0.5, 0.5);
        context.lineJoin = 'bevel';
        context.lineWidth = 25;
        context.lineTo(150, 150);
