File permissions on html server (recursive chmod) differentiating between files and directories

I recursively screwed up the file permissions in my html servers root directory. To fix it I needed to deploy some "advanced" chmod settings. Obviously I want to treat directories and files differently. I didn't come up with a better solution than the following:

chmod -R u=rw-x,g=rw-x,o=r-wx *
chmod -R a+X *
