Word division

see Division of words (that's what the UN calls it)

World Bank

Never World Bank Group, says the UN (418). And I thought that was a good way of indicating that the World Bank is more than the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, including the International Development Agency (soft loans to poor countries), International Finance Corporation (for loans to private companies) and the Multilateral Export Guarantee Agency.

world-wide

says the UN (360). 'Worldwide' as adjective and adverb, says WHO (97). That's so you can tell which organization you are working for. OM proposes 'worldwide' (1264). ODWE says "world-wide (hyphen)". POD has no hyphen. But it's World Wide Web in all the computer books I've read.
