Well spotted. Hmmm - that might be something to screen the existing
parser modes for - without the /u flag (which isn't used at this time)
certain regex behaviour is controlled by your server's locale settings
e.g. what is regarded as a word character. It may be possible to add
the /u flag (in lexer.php - look for "perlMatchingFlags") but it might
break things - having the unit tests there would be important. I guess
there will be very few cases though where it's a problem - might be
easier to review the the existing modes and the regexes they use.
