Not sure what you're trying to do, but in the MythTV code, when we use a 
value (such as "Default") in the database we translate only for 
display.  So, you should be able to use t() or whatever only for 
displaying the value.  And since, TTBOMK, HTML allows differentiation 
between labels and values for everything but command buttons, you should 
be able to deal with any situation by differentiation between (display) 
labels and (non-display/non-translated) values.
