"It is 12 o'clock now."

Can somebody help me understand the grammar here? 在 in previous lessons seems to generally be used as a marker of location translating closely to "is in", but here it seems to indicate time. I'm tempted to read 现在十二点 as now "is" (在) 12:00, but that would seem to use the word differently from how it was used in earlier lessons. Or is 在 not a verb here at all?
jeez, would it be possible to have some consistency about punctuation? You can skip question marks, commas and whatever, but if you do not write down full stops you're answer is refused. Couldn't it be considered a typo? Is punctuation particularly important in Chinese?
