better :-)
Latin bisextǐlis (acc. bisextǐlem -> Italian: bisestile), from bisĕxtus [< "bis sextus"], "two times the sixth" :-)
(with only one "s") precisely, but the same meaning.

The 366th day every four year...

Another simple but useful Leap proposal:
Code:
EXPORT leap(y)
BEGIN
local b, l;
IF (NOT(y MOD 4) AND y MOD 100) OR (NOT y MOD 400) THEN b:=1; l:="leap"; // leap
ELSE b:=0; l:="not leap"; // ordinary
END;
PRINT;
PRINT(STRING(y) + " is " + STRING(l));
RETURN {y,b};
END;
