can someone explain css applying to custom tags?

So I noticed that if I use random tags like <asdf>asjfd;ks f;sajf;ls f</asdf> and apply a style to asdf, Mozilla will actually support it while IE will not. Is this a feature of Mozilla or of css? If someone can refer me to some literature on this I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks a lot!

It's related to the way that browsers handle XML, which can contain custom tags and is (on the web) typically used for storing data in a flat file. While custom tags in HTML are fun to play with, they don't have any practical value as they can't be viewed cross-browser and are the other side of the spectrum of Web standards.
