The same difference as between: between and in-between.

That's too subtle for me to worry about. I'll just go with what sounds right (based on what sounds right in English) and I think I'll be okay.

::edit:: That website is also filled with grammatical errors. If you can find something that provides examples rather than confusing explanations, please let me know. (I'm searching and failing. I don't blame you for picking that website.)

::edit2:: I found this explanation more helpful: http://community.oxforddictionaries.com/boards/topic/between-vs-in-between/

Until now, this was one of those things that I just did automatically and never had to think about. Never had an ESL student ask me about it either.

Tussen in is altijd met het woord er.....Hij slaapt er tussen in.
