How can I get Publisher to recognize that the time display x:xx (with\hours and minutes separated by a colon), is not a misspelling?

If you insert a time via a field - current, created, saved, printed - Publisher doesn’t count the time as text when it comes to the spell check but that’s probably not good enough for what you need.

You can ‘trick’ Publisher into not marking a time such as hh:mm as a spell check issue by inserting a Hair Space (via Text → Insert) either side of the colon, e.g. hh<hair space>:<hair space>mm. (Doing the same using a Zero-Width Space would look better but it doesn’t work for some reason.) It’s not ideal but might might be okay for some purposes.

How could numbers fail a spell check? I would call this a bug. Even dirtier workaround: Do a complete spell-check learning from 00:00 up to 23:59 ;)

Set the spelling language to none for your "time" characters

Due to the ongoing Brexit negotiations, punctuation, spelling and grammar will be used sparingly until further notice.
