Default quick DX9/Vista question

I currently use a DX9 card and dont plan on upgrading to a DX10 card anytime soon but I was just wondering if I upgraded to Vista will Directx be upgraded automatically to DX10? or can I stay with DX9 since thats what my card can support. And If I had DX10 on a DX9 card will there be issues?

i belive if you want to run vista with a dx9 card you will have to run some kind of emulator. but idk if thats true or not
i know that your card wont just upgrade to dx10 tho, its a dx9 card and will never be a dx10 card
