You had a few html errors.  Working sample.   http://jsbin.com/aridej/1/edit  I have had this project on my own radar and just about to implement myself.

Think about encrypting that signature either serverside or js https://code.google.com/p/crypto-js/

I am still getting the same issue, it "writes" out whatever the name in <div class="typed">Mickey Mouse</div> instead of recreating the signature assigned to  "var sig"

Am I still missing something?

Thanks,

Your table did not validate.  I made a simple table and it worked  http://jsbin.com/aridej/4/edit   It is important with js to make sure everything is valid or it gets messed up.

,{"lx":106,"ly":18,"mx":106,"my":20},{"lx":107,"ly":17,"mx":106,"my":18},{"lx":107,"ly":15,"mx":107,"my":17},{"lx":107,"ly":14,"mx":107,"my":15},{"lx":108,"ly":14,"mx":107,"my":14},{"lx":108,"ly":15,"mx":108,"my":14},{"lx":109,"ly":17,"mx":108,"my":15},{"lx":109,"ly":19,"mx":109,"my":17},{"lx":109,"ly":20,"mx":109,"my":19},{"lx":110,"ly":24,"mx":109,"my":20},{"lx":111,"ly":27,"mx":110,"my":24},{"lx":111,"ly":30,"mx":111,"my":27},{"lx":112,"ly":32,"mx":111,"my":30},{"lx":114,"ly":32,"mx":112,"my":32},{"lx":115,"ly":32,"mx":114,"my":32},{"lx":117,"ly":31,"mx":115,"my":32},{"lx":117,"ly":30,"mx":117,"my":31},{"lx":118,"ly":28,"mx":117,"my":30},{"lx":119,"ly":26,"mx":118,"my":28},{"lx":120,"ly":26,"mx":119,"my":26},{"lx":122,"ly":26,"mx":120,"my":26},{"lx":124,"ly":27,"mx":122,"my":26},{"lx":125,"ly":27,"mx":124,"my":27},{"lx":126,"ly":28,"mx":125,"my":27},{"lx":128,"ly":29,"mx":126,"my":28},{"lx":129,"ly":30,"mx":128,"my":29}
