If you are having problems with the Albino gem returning nothing, make sure you are running Pygmentize under Python2.
I was encountering this issue from the command line:
pygmentize -l ruby -f html -O encoding=utf-8 test.rb
*** Error while highlighting:
TypeError: must be str, not bytes
(file "/usr/lib/python3.2/codecs.py", line 356, in write)
In Arch Linux for example the default Python is Python3.2, installing Pygmentize under Python2.7 solved this for me.
