A couple of usability issues re Telnames .tel domains

Suppose you have just come across a Telnames .tel for the first time - take the demo site as an example.


It's pretty standard internet practice that if you hold the cursor over an image and the hand symbol appears then if you click on the image it either takes you somewhere or the image enlarges.

Try this on one of the slideshow images on - the hand symbol (I'm using IE) appears, click on the image and nothing happens !.


How is someone new to a Telnames .tel supposed to know they can click on the text header to minimise the text area and display the background photo ?

Minor points they may be - but in business when looking for new customers first impressions of professionalism do count !

One more thing:
The white color for the gallery background must have run empty. Why the hell it's black?
A severe case of color blindness of the programmer???
Nobody at Telnames who noticed this obvious mistake before going live???
