about Pentax KX highlight clipping

I am somewhat of a beginner (years ago shot film with Canon AE1) and I am considering the Pentax KX. I have read about highlight clipping. Is there an easy way around this such as auto bracketing? The other choice is to buy Canon T1i which supposedly doesnt have this problem. The price on the KX with 2 lenses is about the same as the T1i with one. I could stretch and buy the T2i. Any thoughts are appreciated. Thank you!

I have a K-x and have not noticed any particular problem with highlight clipping.
The K-x does have bracketing capability. (3 shots, you can choose how much +/- on the exposure on either side of the middle one)
The K-x also has a "Highlight Correction" feature that can be turned on/off.

Agreed, no highlight clipping problem on my K-X. It could clip if you overexpose though but all DLSRs will do that. Buy in peace!
