Certain sets of words in the English language tend to confuse writers. I have found the following to be among them:
ALL RIGHT / ALRIGHT
These two representations of the idea that everything is A-OK mean exactly the same thing. However, even though alright is now considered reputable, all right is more common and, among people of a certain age, anyway, definitely preferable. So in formal writing, at least, I would advise using all right. Otherwise you may come across as appearing uneducated.
Informal: And that’s when we knew that everything would be alright.
Preferable: And that’s when we knew that everything would be all right.
