    The only thing that I find questionable is the section in the green circle. The 2 fixtures are not both draining in the same vertical continuous waste and vent.

    That's the way I interpret the code anyway

    You mean the tub and the sink? If so then what you quoted from the code book wouldn't apply because they're not both wet venting fixtures. Only the lav is a wet venting fixture.

    The code clause you quoted is referring to a system where you have to wet vented fixtures draining into a vertical soil or waste stack, or branch, or w/e and they are connected at the SAME vertical elevation you must connect them with a double fitting.

    There is only one vertical portion of piping that is wet vented and that's from the sink.

    .
    The qouted clause refers to 2 wet venting fixtures venting 1 fixture, in this case the toilet. The tub needs to be seperately vented and the lav becomes the wet venting fixture for the toilet.(as the latter part of the qoute states), that is the way I am interpreting it.
