    I used to use 'no-one' until I realised it was wrong. But I like it. Somehow 'no one' just doesn't seem right. We say 'someone', not 'some one', 'anyone', not 'any one', so 'no-one' makes sense. Then I noticed it a few more times, and started using it again.
    No-one has to copy me if they feel it's wrong.

    Business English books teach expressions with "whereas".

    I say "no-one" but I usually avoid it in writing using "nobody"!

    To BobSmith:

    I meant to say that I prefer no one to no-one.
