Ah I see. Glad I'm not crazy.

Although my original report mentioned both JS and CSS, my recent email
only mentioned CSS. So I should emphasize that both are missing, and

For example, the following hack fixes the issue for me:

greg at mbp in /Applications/Racket_v5.93/doc
$ ls *.css
doc-site.css       manual-racket.css  racket.css         scribble.css
manual-fonts.css   manual-style.css   scribble-style.css
greg at mbp in /Applications/Racket_v5.93/doc
$ cp *.css /Users/greg/Library/Racket/5.93/doc/

greg at mbp in /Applications/Racket_v5.93/doc
$ ls *.js
doc-site.js        scribble-common.js
greg at mbp in /Applications/Racket_v5.93/doc
$ cp *.js /Users/greg/Library/Racket/5.93/doc/

After that, both (a) the appearance is correct and (b) search works.
