Standard is, in order of priority:

1) Your company style guide
2) A published style guide
3) How your boss wants it
4) How you want it.

In absence of #1, Microsoft MofS uses small caps, with
periods, no spaces (8A.M.)

SUN's Style Guide for the Computer Industry uses 8
a.m., with a space between the 8 and the a, no space
between the a.m. (8 a.m.)
