Basic question on XML Naming conventions

It is said that element names cannot start with the
"xml" (or "XML", "Xml", etc). If an instance violates this rule, does it give an error when trying to parse the xml document?
I intentionally violated the rule and tried opening the xml document using the browser and it did not give me any error.
Browser : Internet Explorer 6.0
Someone please enlighten me.
