Tile like you normally would to that unfinished edge then install matching bullnose? Then treat any gap left over as a regular drywall joint and finish with tape and mud.

Gotcha, HandyDave. I've never tiled walls, only floors. My assumption, and, it could easily be wrong, would be that you also could finish that corner like a normal drywall corner but use mortar/thinset instead of joint compound for the Hardie board side, and, regular joint compound on the drywall side. I suppose the problem could be that you create a corner on the hardie side that isn't truly flat causing a problem with the laying of the tile.

That was my thought exactly! AND the problem it created when putting a corner piece on. It simply will not be flat.
