Question Ceramic Floor Tile over Ceramic Tile?

Can I install ceramic floor tile over the existing ceramic in my bathroom? The underlayment beneath the existing tile is good and will support the new tile as well as the heigth will not affect anything else in my bathroom.
Thanks for your help.

Yes,,,,,,I was unaware this could be done until I read the tile forum at www.johnbridges.com which is the most comprehensive tile setting site on the web. I just tiled over tile in my kitchen wall and with the information on the site, I was able to cut the labor time to a 1/3 as I avoided the typical tear down time. I coated the old tile with a modified thinset mastic and let it dry to give the tiles a better base to adhere too, and used mud caps on the edges to make up the 1/4" space back to the wall.
