Default DX10 and DX9

I've read some other articles and forums about this but I'm still confused. I recently upgraded to a X1950XT graphics card. I have read that DX9 cards won't work at all on DX10, but other sources said that there will be backward compatability but you won't get the full functionality a DX10 card would bring. Could someone clear this up and explain it for me. Will game developers continue to develop DX9 cards for a while?

Thanks for all your help, I'm sure your tired of hearing about this.

DX9 video cards will play DX10 games such as UT07, but not at it's full potential.
