Tile around tub/shower


Can anyone tell me if you can tile over paperless drywall in the tub and shower area?

I would suggest that you install cement board, not paperless dryall.
Paperless drywall is not intended for such an application.
It is a fibergalss mesh coated gypsum (with anti-mold additives), that is the only difference between it and normal sheetrock (paper coated gypsum - no anti-mold)
If paperless gets wet, it will disintegrate like normal sheetrock does.

Not so with cement board.
