This note presents alternative proofs of these pointfree results which differ from those of [4] by treating the issue in terms of <em>frame homomorphisms</em> while the latter deals with the dual situation concerning <em>localic maps</em>. A notable advantage of the present approach is that it also provides proofs of the analogous results for some significant variants of frames which are not covered by the localic arguments.https://cgasa.sbu.ac.ir/article_32712_7102051b8b0d2b0555b4ab6cee021fc7.pdf
