In OSIS they should surround the text to which they pertain. In other markup, they are placed after the word or phrase.

You can omit them, but then a strong's number search won't find the verse.

Or put them at the end. It'd be good if front ends did not display them in verses when they weren't associated with a word. But since they don't, I wouldn't put them at the beginning. But add them in the order that they occurred in the original Greek.

But is is best to mark the proper word.
