changing trunk weatherstripping

I've gotten such great advice before from folks here I thought I'd ask another question: I have to change the weatherstripping around my trunk. The problem is, the groove around the trunk the weatherstripping fits into is rusted through in places. I can probably glue it anyway, but:
1. is there something I should coat the rust with before I put the weatherstripping down?
2. and here's the dumbest question of the night, I'm sure, but one side of the wweatherstripping has a taller edge than the other side. is it the taller side that goes toward the outside and the shorter side that goes on the interior of the trunk side?
Thanks for everyone's help. Trying to learn how to do the little things myself so the car doesn't break me.
