They are written by the person who submits them to the site.

Some folks (such as myself) write our own tabs. Some others copy and paste tabs from other sites (booooooo, lazy tabbers! )
sorry i phrased that poorly, i was wondering what program/software they were made in

I used to use Word, now I'm using Google Docs.

I made my template by copying one of LoudLon's tabs and taking out the numbers, substituting them with the dash. I use Courier for the font, and I hit Insert on the keyboard to go into typeover mode so I don't have to delete dashes to keep things aligned.

You can write directly into the submission field using the Clef button above the text box, which supplies a staff that looks like this:

Tabs:
G|--------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------|

Or you can do like nick and I do and write your tabs on a template of your own making, then copy and paste your tab into the submission field. Personally, I use good ol' Microsoft Notepad, 12-point Courier New font.
I use Sublime Text 3, it has support for multi-line editing
