Shower tile question.

I'd like to put a ceramic tile border above my fiberglass shower enclosure, yet I've read that it is not advisable to put tile against normal drywall. Has anyone done this and had lasting, good results? Are there any new material options that obviate the need to rip out the drywall and install a cementious backer board? The border would be 6 feet above the floor of the shower and wouldn't receive direct water flow.
