Bug: Strange code instead of Instructable text Answered

I was ready to publish an Instructable I translated, so I pressed the "Save" button to the press "Publish", but after pressing "Save", it occurred something strange:
The first step of my Instructable disappeared. I refreshed the page and then it appeared some strange codes instead of the original text I wrote, so I had to restore a backup.

Is this normal?

That happens to me sometimes when publishing forum topics, but then it turns into normal text after a few seconds...
