Uppercase selectors will fail if you serve the page as XHTML.
However,
that will exclude Internet Explorer from your audience.  In
practice, you
must serve XHTML 1.0 as broken HTML, so it is much better, to
serve
unbroken HTML instead, as readers will not benefit from the XML.

Basically, the page will display in IE if you send it with media
type
text/html, but that is saying that it is NOT XHTML.  The HTML
document
parse tree, not the XHTML one will be used.

I assume the XHTML capable browsers will also treat it as broken
HTML.
