If
IN+NO+TI+ME=END
and
4215939586, 4561, 937 represent valid English words,
how would you code "EXTRAORDINAIRE"?

Without having seen the hint, I have the same solution as Steve.
Yet, determining that "valid" words are those that would not be rejected in a game of Scrabble (with the current word list), it can be said there are no other solutions.

IN + NO + TI+ME = END
56 + 68 + 95+42 = 261

4215939586     = MEDITATION
4561           = MIND
937            = TAX            or TAR

EXTRAORDINAIRE = 27903801563502 or 20973871563572

(Of the two solutions for 937, TAX seems to me to be more congruent to the theme.)
