Although all right can also be spelled alright, you should use all right in formal writing.
The form alright as a one-word spelling of the phrase all right in all of its senses probably arose by analogy with such words as already and altogether. Although alright is a common spelling in written dialogue and in other types of informal writing, all right is used in more formal, edited writing.

Is it weird that this thread is making me happy?
(Oh how tempted I was to write "wierd"! )
My favourite has to be not using capital letter for names!
And just seeing myself type it, leaving the 'u' out of words like favourite and honour. I know either way is 'correct' , but I learnt the Queens english at school and I stick with it
