It is definitely not Michael Kay's part to explain that.

How about:

<sentence lang="en">Forgot your password? Fill in [[[this form]]] to retrieve
your password.</sentence>
<sentence lang="de">Haben Sie das Passwort vergessen? Bitte f|llen Sie
[[[dieses Formular]]] aus, um ihr Passwort zu erhalten.</sentence>

You can then use substring-before() and substring-after() to split the text
and fill in the necessary tags for the hypertext link.
