Homonym Hump Day - Every Time or Everytime?

Today's Homonym Hump Day pairing could be considered a trick - at least for anyone lacking in grammar as much as I am. The reality is this ISN'T a homonym - it's just sloppy slang.

According to Everytime should be written as two separate words: every time."While some compound words like everywhere and everyone have become commonplace in the English language everytime is not considered an acceptable compound word."

And now I know. :)
