It looks good here overall, but I have a couple of gentle criticisms /
mild suggestions:

  * Eeeeuuuuuuggggggh, Arial before Helvetica in the font stack makes
    the text look horrible on my Mac. If you want Arial on Windows
    (because Windows renders Helvetica horribly) you could try:

        font-family: "Helvetica Neue", Arial, sans-serif;

    instead. It'll look a lot better. Or just "sans-serif"; Windows will
    probably pick Arial, Linux and Mac systems will pick a sensible
    font, and everyone will be happy.

  * The "Download Haskell" text should be in HTML, and removed from the
    .png -- I could see if it was some cool heading font that wasn't
    likely to be on the user's system, but it's in Trebuchet MS --
    double yuck.

  * the curved corners on the box look funny.
