**local frame**. What is the relationship between local frames and coordinate bases? Are they the same thing? Is one a subset of the other?

The connection form article uses general notation [tex]e_\alpha[/tex] for the basis elements instead of the partial derivative notation [tex]\partial_\alpha[/tex] typically used for coordinate bases. Is it because not all bases are coordinate bases?
