Too many typo's in the last note. Let's try again:

I think I'm missing something regarding grout application instructions. Through this message board, I have seen comments about leaving a gap between the edges of the outer row of tiles and the wall. I didn't see this in the instructions on the boxes of tile or on the Avaire web site, but have not yet read the instruction on the tub of grout. So is this the correct procedure for grouting
- leave a 1/4" gap between the outer tile and the wall
- leave a gap between the tile and a tub or toilet, but fill the gap with silicone caulk

If the grout is waterproof, why is it not used by the tub and silicone caulk is?
Thanks
