There's a single A record that's hard-coded and not user-modifiable.  
The A record points to a Telnic-managed proxy system that simply  
displays the DNS info in a standard web template. Not everyone knows  
dig or has an app that goes straight to the DNS, so it's kind of  
useful to be able to use the Web to see that info :)

For any content (blogs, pictures, etc...) you can use any of a myriad  
free services, or your own .com-type domain. Just point to them with  
NAPTR records on your .tel.

Because the ANY command is mostly broken in most implementations and  
should be avoided like the plague.

dig +bufsize=4000 henri.tel naptr
dig +bufsize=4000 henri.tel txt
dig henri.tel loc
