Question M104 valve-cover and head-gasket caveats

When replacing the M104 valve-cover gasket, does anyone have any caveats and/or hints & tips?

I was told to use a small-amount of high-tack gasket adhesive to help position the rear of the valve-cover gasket.
One tech told me a very light and thin coat of Wurth DP-300 (Hylomar) would keep any leaks from happenning.

I want to avoid any RTV clogging scenario, so any info would be most appreciated.

BTW: regarding the cylinder head-gasket, I assume use no sealants at all.
