Are ATA Eide cables backwards compatible ?

Want to replace me eide cables for nice rounded ones!

Currently using ATA 100 HDD and mobo.

Would like to get ATA 133 cables if the're backwards compatible to save buying more when I upgrade my mobo & HDD.

Will they run at the lower speed please ?

I have checked some of these round cables, they all said ATA/33/66/100/133 Compatible, if this is any help?
