Getting the driving directions that matches the route shown

Excellent work here.  I was wondering if anyone knows how to get the set of driving directions that goes with the route plotted between two markers?  Thanks in advance.

hm... but why we need this?

Sometimes people like a written explanation of how to get to their destination.  Also, it is sometimes hard to read street names (expecially if they are small streets) on the image map.  This way the user has both an image of the path they take along with step by step instructions as well (maybe they will print out the instructions).

seems good point, takes some time

Could you point me in the right direction since you have been through the web services documentation?  All I need is a link to the general area.  After I figure it out I'll send the code to you to include in your well written application.
