Depends how far back you need to go. Unknown elements are rendered
inline and IE (versions prior to 9) can't style unknown elements at
all by default.

There are workarounds[1][2], and I'm sorely tempted to start relying
on them in the HTML output from the DocBook XSLT 2.0 stylesheets, for
which HTML5 is specifically the target.

                                        Be seeing you,
