noon, midnight, 12:00, 24:00

The software translates "midnight" to "12:00AM". It also translates both "12" and "24" to "12:00AM". Sometimes it also translates "noon" to "12:00AM" (if the task is for the current day) and otherwise ignores it. Clearly there's some inconsistency.

I think the common usage is for midnight to be shown as 12:00AM and noon as 12:00PM (even though "PM" means "after noon"). It's less confusing, though, to speak of "12 noon" and "12 midnight" or to use the 24 hour clock.

Excellent software, by the way. If only I could link it to my Palm calendar.
