Question Kitchen winodow trim & tile backsplash

I'm in the middle of a kitchen remodel. I will be replacing the kithchen window that is above the sink. The question I have, does it matter to trim out the window before installing the tile backspash and have the tile 'bump' into the wood casing or install the trim after and have it lay on top of the tile (obviously I would need to install some type filler piece below the casing so it lays flat)?

The tile hasn't been picked out yet if that matters in the decision process.

I don't think its a big deal one way or the other, I'm leaning towards installing the window trim first.

Install the trim first...On top of whatever you mount the tile to.

How would you attach it to the tile anyway, no nails obviously. And as you mention, the filler would be a pain.

And if for some reason you need to replace the window before the tile, trim first gives working room.
