Hi,

I'm hoping I can get some advice on how expressions of time can be
accessibly formatted on web pages.

For example, is 11:00 a.m. or 2:00 p.m. considered (generally) acceptable,
or would 11:00 am or 2:00 pm (without periods between letters) be
preferable? Is another format better?

Thank you,

Andy Keyworth
