Not sure if this one is an XML limitation.

1. Open attached file

Result 2nd part written in Tablature in Finale 2003 is displayed as standard notation in Treble Clef.

I know, is on my list of things to do (just like figured bass and many others), but thanks for reminding. Either just be patient and wait until I manage to get it done, or find another volunteer. Please note that my time is limited.

As of revision 5549, export works for the simple case of only a TAB staff (linked staff not implemented yet). Any feedback is appreciated, especially bug reports / results of compatibility tests.

As of revision 5564, import works for the simple case of only a TAB staff. Note that currently a guitar in standard tuning is assumed. Importing/exporting staff details still to be done.

One more remark: the attached file is not in tablature format (it uses the G clef for both staves, no string or fret information is present.

The original issue is not a MuseScore but a Finale export issue: the attached file does not contain any tablature information. Furthermore, MusicXML tablature import/export has been implemented in MuseScore quite some time ago, so I feel this issue should be closed.
