[XeTeX] forming a star around a number in Arabic script

I have a challenge for someone out there. I'm working in Arabic script, and have a need to include numbers in the text (in Hindi number format) that are superscripted and enclosed in a kind of "star". I have included an image below, but I don't know if that can come through on the list. (I can email it offline if anyone is interested.) The image shows a "star" that is actually the outside border of two squares rotated 45 degrees from each other. It may be acceptable for the actual shape of the "star" in my application to be different, so if someone wanted to produce a circle or a square (at least as a first draft), I would be interested in that as well.

So is anyone up to the challenge of producing a (Xe)TeX macro that will do this?
