Can I watch Blu-rays though a PS3 on a standard-definition TV?

I won't be buying an HDTV until the end of this year and had planned to buy a PS3 around the same time, but now I'm wondering if I hooked a PS3 up to my current 10-year old SDTV, would anything be visible? Obviously it wouldn't be HD, but is it capable of displaying a downgraded image from a Blu-ray disc? Thanks.

I second that. I have a standard TV with a PS3. I've bought several Blu-rays (in anticipation of upgrading the TV) and they play fine. They look just like regular DVDs.
