My current favorite reference, "The New York Public Library
Writer's Guide to Style and Usage," c.1994, says the following:

"When referring to 12 a.m. or 12 p.m., eliminate confusion by
specifying 12:00 noon or 12:00 midnight."

Since "noon" and "midnight" mean twelve o'clock in the daytime
and at night, respectively, wouldn't "twelve noon" and "twelve midnight"
be redundant?
