A tab is actually just a button used as a menu. When you click on the
rightmost tab of the properties palette, you can name the tabs. Then in the
script of the button, you put a script like:

on menuPick pWhich
  switch pWhich
  case "firsttab"
    hide group "secondstuff"
    show group "firststuff"
  case "secondtab"
    hide group "firststuff"
    show group "secondstuff"
  end switch
end menuPick
