A pet peeve

Whenever I see “tonite” it grates. For me it's the visual equivalent of hearing chalk scraping on a blackboard.

Until recently I thought that “tonite” was an acceptable albeit annoying American spelling of “tonight”. In fact it isn't. Even though “tonite” seems to be in fairly common usage amongst Americans, it is incorrect.
