In English, it is necessary to capitalize 'I' no matter where it lies in the sentence.

I am curious to know if this rule applies to Yo in Spanish.

No, the rule does not apply in Spanish.

The capitalization is only required at the beginning of the sentence, as any other word (except for names, of course).

You can write: "No es mayor que yo" (he is not older than I am).

    You can, no. You must write it in lowercase. – MikMik Jul 17 '13 at 7:46

    By the way, mayor, although it also means "más grande", when refering to people means "de más edad". At least, that's how it's used in Spain. I've never heard mayor as "más alto", when it's about people. – MikMik Jul 17 '13 at 7:49
