    Hey I had the same problem: The import of pygments.lexers.web did not work. I switched to Python version 2.5.4 and there is the bug fixed. I hope this helps.

    Yes, this is an issue with one of my last commits. It affects all narrow builds of python (sys.maxunicode == 65535ish).

    I'm working on a fix as well as making regexlint recognize this case.
