I'm gutting a half-bathroom (now shower or tub) and laundry room in a 1926 house and am planning to put subway tile on the walls with a P-cap at the top. Framing is on 16 inch centers. I'm planning to use cement backer board under the tile.

Where should I transition from backer board to drywall relative to where the top of the P-cap is? Should the p-cap cover the seam between backer board and drywall? Do I need to tape that and mud that seam, or just tape it? What should the thickness of the backer board be relative to the drywall, taking into account the thickness of the adhesive? At the corners, do I tape the corner to prevent grout from getting pushed through during that phase? And finally, should the tile go under the door jamb or around it?
