 I just updated to WordPress 5 and started using the new block editor.

 I typeset source code in my posts using a <pre> tag. This code contains a
 > comparison operator. Upon saving my draft, > gets replaced with >,
 and this entity is also displayed in the article preview.

 This happens even if I disable the visual editor.

 The old editor does not present this bug and installing the Classic Editor
 extension allowed me to work around this.
