With M-x apropos display-time, I found the variable and its
documentation, but I don't know elisp.  I was hoping there was some
information in the manual, but no.

Is there a little something I can put in my ~/.emacs to get the form:

yyyymmdd hh:mm

It isn't ELisp, it's UNIX: 'man strftime' can explain. Then you can experiment on the command line with something like:

        date '+%Y%M%d %R%p'

When you've found what you want, you can customise display-time- format to become "%Y%M%d %R%p" or your finding.
