Kitchen backsplash, remove window sill bottom or not?

I am planning out kitchen backsplash tile install. Does the bottom piece of the window sill gets removed permanently. or tile around it, or remove, tile then reinstall it?

The window trim is usually left in place. You can't nail wood trim to tile.

Or not...



Tile installed under window stool with no apron.

This picture also illustrates an adjustment to avoid a thin sliver of tile at the vertical trim. Full tiles in the rows below the window were trimmed short to shift the pattern 1/4 inch to the right. Tiles were being installed from right-to-left. A full tile would have extended 1/4 inch past the vertical trim and would have required a 1/4 inch sliver at each next full tile to the left of the trim.

Window trim can also be installed over tile. Here is an example in a bathroom where the stool is deep enough to accommodate the thickness of the apron and the tile below. The apron is glued to the tile.
