This is what I get when using Rainbow in my actual project. I'm not using the data-language attribute but classes, and I think there is the problem.

Except for this error it's working very well! Maybe you should add a try..catch block around the problematic function, not really sure.

This ticket has not had any updates in a while. I just released version 2.0 of Rainbow and I have a feeling this should be resolved. If it is still not working please reopen and link me to a jsfiddle.
