These files were pretty borked, watch the extensions, HTTP-Equiv and .var map folks!
I counted four duplicate translations, and several mis-encoded ones.

Whoa... I accedently left the .hr.iso-8859-2 flavor that Mladen contributed in
my tree when I did this mass-update.  Do we want to retract that till it gets a 
second signoff, or just wait a day or two for Mladen to ask a programmer-type 
associate to email apache-docs@ with a "yes - I've read this translation, it's good."
I don't know how quickly we will 'aquire' another Croatian speaker.

Encodings today include windows-1251, cp866, iso-8859-5, koi8-r, and utf-8.
I don't know if we _need_ that many of one language this day-and-age, would
anyone care to shed more light on this?
