Driving Directions using MSN Virtual Earth

I just noticed a new addition of a new service to the Via VirtualEarth gallery that provides access to driving directions using Virtual Earth (U.S. only, for now) The demo (using AJAX) was created by François Joffre. Try clicking on any of the numbered items for more close-up look or text info. François explains some of the tech stuff on his Map Bazaar blog. He also points out that a new release (no word as to when it's coming) of MSN Virtual Earth will "officially" include a driving directions tool.
