you guys are all wrong. it's commonly written with hiragana like this: "こんにちは." but it can be written in kanji too, like this: "今日は." now, if you stop and look at those words, you'll notice that they mean, "as for today...." when you see "こんにちわ," possibly in a manga or on bbs or something like that, it's just a corrupted spelling to look cute. the "wa" in "konnichi wa" being the particle "wa," after all.
skrhgh and Schattenjedi are right. The kana used is HA not WA (は not わ)--but the sound is WA. And the kanji is 今日は. But 今日は is not used that often... probably because 今日 can also be read きょう, to mean "today."
