Hi, I made an change to the RandomContent widget so that it would show only the first paragraph of a page.

The original code

<div class="RandomContentWidget">
   <% control RandomContent %>
      $Content
   <% end_control %>
</div>

Updated to show only the first paragraph of each page

<div class="RandomContentWidget">
   <% control RandomContent %>
   <p>$Content.FirstParagraph <a href="$Link" title="Read more on &quot;{$Title}&quot;">Read more &gt;&gt;</a></p>
   <% end_control %>
</div>

Is there a better way to do this (i.e. without using <p> tags)?
