    'Round the Clock' or 'Around the Clock'

    Hello,

    Which is correct? It's for a title. Would you have '-' both sides of 'the'? Should 'the' have a capital 't'?

    Many thanks.

    There is no difference between "round the clock" and "around the clock".

    We usually do not capitalize "the" in titles unless it is the first word.

    May I say "put hyphens around 'the'"?

    Or "Should I hyphenate 'round-the-clock'?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
