It is supported in IE9+ but only when the page is really served as XHTML (it isn't supported in any browser where the page is served using the HTML MIME type)..
The only reason it doesn't work in IE8 is that IE8 and earlier do not support XHTML - which is why so many people still serve their pages as HTML even though they have an XHTML doctype.
