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 %>
	<% end_control %>

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 %>

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