...or which could be used, as now, to project authority and decisiveness.

The white space below the text currently on the Racket page says "this is all that has to be said at this point; follow the links above for more information".  That makes me at least pay more attention to it.

If there's more text on the page, as in the sample page, I read less of it, and I don't imagine I'm alone in that.

I can feel my eyes gliding over the page, trying to find some way of parsing it.  I alight on the 'Download Racket' link, and on the 'About', 'Download', 'Documentation', ... headlines, and they end up being the only things I see at all.

Best wishes,
