Mixing ISA and PCI cards in opposite slots

I have heard that it is possible to put a PCI card in a ISA slot and it will sometimes work. Is this true and if so can you do the opposite and put an ISA card in a PCI slot?

an ISA slot is either an 8 or a 16 bit and the PCI is either 32 bit or maybe even 64 bit (newer boards)
