    Good link, Nan W. You can also use a product from Schluter called Ditra instead of a heavy underlayment. It prevents subfloor movement from propagating from floor to tile and prevents cracking. Pre-plan your layout to minimize cutting and having narrow pieces along the edges. There is also grout available that doesn't need to be sealed. That will save time and $$. Staggering grout joints (like a brick pattern) will hide some of your boo-boos.

    If you are tiling, you should glue the orange mat down first. This prevents the tiles from cracking. Lay out your tiles in a small pattern to see where you should start, usually along the tub area but every bathroom is different in the layout so place a small pattern down first to see what you prefer. Use the correct glue for tiles and the spacers you need if leaving a grout line. Let set and then grout if necessary.
