Sorry, but I have to disagree with that. It might be clear in the US or other English speaking countries - or... well... most people in IT, but not to the average users from my country or by my guess must people in Europe. They constantly have to ask what am/pm means and those little things like 12am/pm vs. 0am/pm add more to the confusion. 24h clock is free of those possible misinterpretations - and that's the reason why it's used in about every machine and simultaneously human readable format.
So what I'm trying to say is: that's what Internationalisation and Localisation were invented for: let people choose or better: take the OS' definded formatting rules the user has chosen for his or her whole computer. In most cases they are the right ones (not with my pc, but that's a whole new story Wink ).
