Apparently, this is due to   inside alt=. Is this a bug or a feature?

Alttext must be plain text.

The use of HTML markup probably confused the visual editor. The visual editor internally converts wikitext into HTML, lets you edit the HTML, and then converts it all back to wikitext when you save. When it encounters invalid HTML that it can't repair automagically, it will refuse to let you edit that part of the page. Whether is a bug or a feature is a philosophical question that I don't feel able to answer today.
