Yes, it is valid.

Possibly the validator should issue a warning when it encounters  
this, since it is one of the features of HTML 4 mentioned as having  
limited support that authors should avoid using: http://www.w3.org/TR/ 
html4/appendix/notes.html#h-B.3.7

Limited support among clients doesn't make it invalid though.
