Keep WordPress thumbnails from getting squished by max-width in CSS

I set my WordPress post thumbnails to max out at a certain height and width, but they're distorting every image to be exactly that height and width. (No, I'm not on IE, I know IE<7 screws this up, I'll worry about that later. I'm on Firefox 3.6.) Here's my CSS:

.wp-post-image {border: 1px solid black; float:right; margin:10px 40px; max-height:150px; max-width:200px;}

What should I do?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

let Wordpress control the image size instead of css

in functions.php


then you can display the thumbnail in your template file with

if (has_post_thumbnail()) {
