Stata, as Stata, does not support time-of-day formats. 
Everything you do with this kind of data depends 
on other parts of Stata. 

There is nothing to stop you producing 
string variables with contents of this 
kind. However, working with the numeric 
equivalent would require being able 
to distinguish (e.g.) 09:15 and 09:16 reliably 
and precisely. Integer representations
might thus be preferred.
