Bolding or changing text color in Description adds HTML code

When creating a new story (in the cloud version of JIRA), and adding bold or colored text to the Description field, html code is input during my entry of text. 

For example, I bolded the word 'Summary' and changed the text below it to green, this is what happens:  

{color:#14892c}A minimal operations hardware and firmware prototype system needed. {color}

For many of my users who are not software savvy don't understand why this happens.  I'm assuming it is because we are on the cloud using a browser.  Does anyone else see this being an issue or have a workaround?


Thank you,
