Maybe that's just for educational purposes, to break the syllables. I don't think that term, with hyphen, is used regularly, either in print or on the Internet, in the same way one doesn't see "bai-cai" with a hyphen. It doesn't look right. 71.66.97.228 01:34, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
If you still want to verify it, use {{rfv}}. Oddly enough I see more hits for fàn cài than for anything else. Mglovesfun (talk) 17:20, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

Probably that single appearance of the hyphenated form in a single dictionary is just for educational purposes, to break the syllables. I don't think that term, with hyphen, is used regularly, either in print or on the Internet, in the same way one doesn't see "bai-cai" with a hyphen. It doesn't look right. 71.66.97.228 18:45, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
fàn-cài means "fàn and cài" as well as "shēng and jiàng" of shēng-jiàng, but báicài doesn't means "bái and cài". Even so, people don't like to use hyphened spelling, because it is not convenient for use. Ddpy 19:55, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
