Joint compound and tape works also, and produces a much smoother surface for painting.

Use a setting compound if it is going to be tiled over.

When I encounter this i simply use fiberglass tape and setting joint compound. Set the tile paint up to the new tile and caulk after everthing is done.

Cementacious boards should be banned. DensShield looks/feels like rock. Far superior to cementacious material - much lighter too.

I do what dakota does, fiberglass and hot mud.
