Editing Mail Templates in Backoffice using IE rewrites tags

Problem:
When editing mail templates using the internet explorer the tags that insert real-time data are being rewritten. This prevents correct data to load in email.
See this example:

<a href="%5BWEBSITEDOMAIN%5D">[WEBSITEDOMAIN]</a>
<a href="mailto:%5BSHOPEMAIL%5D">[SHOPEMAIL]</a>

[ is replaced by %5B and ] is replaced by %5D.

Identified on:
Sana Commerce 8.2 with IE 10, IE 9 and IE 8.

Work-a-round:
This problem seems only to present itself on the IE browser. If you need to edit an email template we suggest to use an alternative browser.
