if you know the parameters, you can define it as a Custom CRS. Settings -> Custom CRS. I couldn't find 5235 in the EPSG database. What are you trying to use it for? – spatialthoughts Jul 2 '12 at 13:34

This is what, SLD99/Sri Lanka Grid 1999? As mentioned, you'll have to define a custom CRS for this. The parameters I have are as follows:

+proj=tmerc +lat_0=7.000471527777778 +lon_0=80.77171308333334 +k=0.9999238418 +x_0=500000 +y_0=500000 +a=6377276.345 +b=6356075.41314024 +towgs84=-0.293,766.95,87.713,0.195704,1.69507,3.47302,-0.039338 +units=m +no_defs

But I have nothing with which to test this I'm afraid.
