I wonder if there is a way to indicate on this page whether the words are prepositions or postpositions. Maybe we could do it using a hyphen?

Yes, it would be useful for those who don't know which languages use prepositions and which use postpositions. In dictionaries tilde (~) is used sometimes to indicate missing word, but hyphen is good too because it's already used in some words.
