[Inx] Dictionary questions

Hello INX Team,

If using the 12-hour clock, then apart from a.m. and p.m. two other
identifiers must be added, noon and midnight, because there is no such
time as 12 a.m. or 12 p.m.

Noon and midnight are English language terms and are not part of any
universally understood language.

I do not know how this alters when linked to locale.

Therefore, the 24-hour clock for INX is quite acceptable because it is
universally understood.

Another option may be to display the time with an analogue clock.

If it is English only, it should be Australian-English since INX is an
Australian product.

However, if the dictionaries are on-line then the various dictionaries
could be invoked when setting the time zone.  How does this affect users
without an internet connection?

Keep it simple!
