You can upgrade to nano 2.0.x; it was removed there.  The message was
originally intended to catch regex errors, but it didn't take into
account that zero-length regexes could occur legitimately.  (Or there
might actually be an error in your CSS regexes; I don't know enough
about CSS to comment on that.)

Note that color regex support has been changed in 2.0.x (color regexes
can be included from separate files, case-insensitive regex matching has
been added, support for background colors without foreground colors has
been added, etc.), so you might want to adjust your .nanorc's color
sections for it.
