It's been in there for a while - 0.9.4 is pretty out of date - we have
0.9.6 ready. It tells LilyPond do print the staff as tab. If you want
both the straightforward thing to do is to duplicate the staff I guess.
That would be a bit crude though - if you edited one the other would
need re-creating. 
With the upcoming release you could have a layout that printed the same
music on two staffs one as tab the other as normal staff notation. (This
is actually possible in 0.9.4 but you have to know LilyPond and create a
custom scoreblock to do it in the View->LilyPond window - the score
layout feature of 0.9.6 avoids you having to know the LilyPond to do

If you are thinking about what you see as you enter the music (rather
than what is printed) then no, Denemo has no routines to display tab.
You would enter notes and Denemo would print the same notes on two
staffs one tab and one normal. Or you could have a layout where they
were printed out one after the other as separate pieces of music, if
that is what you wanted.

hmm, where is the link? With the upcoming release you get tooltips
almost everywhere... and the possibility of translating Denemo.
