When adding this custom prj- file it will give a wrong projection:
]PROJCS["Transverse_Mercator",GEOGCS["Geographic Coordinate System",DATUMB]"KROATIA_GK_BESSEL1841[/B]",SPHEROID["Bessel 1841",6377397.155,299.1528131060786,PRIMEM["Greenwich",0],UNIT["degree",0.0174532925199433]],PROJECTION["Transverse_Mercator"],PARAMETER["scale_factor",0.9999],PARAMETER["central_meridian",18],PARAMETER["latitude_of_origin",0],PARAMETER["false_easting",6500000],PARAMETER["false_northing",0],UNIT["Meter",1]]

Correcting the name of the datum to this:
PROJCS["Transverse_Mercator",GEOGCS["Geographic Coordinate System",DATUM[[B]"HKOGEL"[/B],SPHEROID["Bessel 1841",6377397.155,299.1528131060786]],PRIMEM["Greenwich",0],UNIT["degree",0.0174532925199433]],PROJECTION["Transverse_Mercator"],PARAMETER["scale_factor",0.9999],PARAMETER["central_meridian",18],PARAMETER["latitude_of_origin",0],PARAMETER["false_easting",6500000],PARAMETER["false_northing",0],UNIT["Meter",1]]

I am curious why these two prj- files are threated different - only the name of the datum have changed - not any of the parameters.

    What wrong projection is provided when you load the first one? I would not expect changing the datum name to affect anything except the datum.

    Thanks,
