```Hi Damian,

Just to confirm... are you looking for

\version "2.11.38"
{ \set Staff.extraNatural = ##t beses' bes' }

i.e., to correct a previous accidental on the same note in the same bar?

```
If not, please give a good reason for having both accidentals but no "split stem", so we can better help you get Lilypond to do what you want.
```My impression is that he wants something like
\version "2.10.0"
naturalplusflat = \markup { \natural \flat }
{
\once \override Accidental #'stencil =
#ly:text-interface::print
\once \override Accidental #'text = #naturalplusflat
\once \override Score.AccidentalPlacement #'right-padding = #1.5
<b' bes'>
}

```
Since <b bes> gives you two note heads, it's not completely impossible for the musician to interpret this as a chord with a b natural and a b flat, but the natural could also be interpreted as just a cancellation of a previous accidental. One layout option that is less ambiguous is to have a split stem, which unfortunately
```isn't supported in LilyPond today, even though
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/lilypond-user/2008-01/msg00208.html
gives something in that direction.
