I think how2pass has it wrong about root port elections.  The answer they give says the root port election depends on the lowest sender bridge-ID.  That is true for election of designated ports, but not root ports.  The election of a root port occurs among ports on only one switch.  The bridge ID doesn't come into play, only the root path cost or port-ID.  If the root path costs are equal then the port with the lowest port-ID would be the root port for the switch.

What do you think?
