Tile substrate

Joe, I agree with mike about not setting tile on
plywood, especially in an area that will probably
get wetted from time to time. The thing is, the whole
floor structure needs to be considered. It isn't
clear to me whether the sub-floor is existing, or
you were planning to install it. If the latter,
what is under it, and why do you want to do that?
If the former, be aware that cement bd. requires
at least 5/8" (preferable 3/4") exterior plywood
over joists (or sleepers) no more than 16" oc. and
must be bedded in mortar.
