In general, any large files lexed by multi-language lexers can experience slowdowns. This has been briefly documented in the lexer doc. I did not change the HTML lexer inbetween 2.2 and 3.0, so any differences are likely arbitrary. I wish there was a way to make multilang lexers as fast as singlelang ones.
