How do you pad an ASP.NET GridView?

I have a gridview where I've left the height of each row blank.  The data inserted will determine the height.  I would like to put a little padding between each row so that the images (which are typically the tallest element in each row) don't stack on top each other.  I've attempted to define a number for CellPadding, but it doesn't seem to change anything.  Any hints?

Use a style sheet and add it for each row in the gridview when it binds
<style type="text/css">
    protected void gvTest_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
        e.Row.CssClass = "addpadding";

I would just set it in the rowstyle property of the gridview.

<style type="text/css">
.pad { padding-top: 10px; }

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server">
        <RowStyle CssClass="pad" />
