Which to install 1st - floor tile or wall tile?

Just wondering. In new construction, does floor tile get installed first, or wall tile?

I've always done the floor first then the wall, but the jury is out as some will do the opposite. The reason is that they don't want people walking on freshly installed tile on the floor. However, you want the wall tile to sit on top of the floor. So if the walls go first, leave the bottom row to be installed last after the floor.

Ahh thanks czizzi. I do recall seeing that wall tile does sit on top of floor tile.
