What's the exact problem you're having? There shouldn't be (too much 
of) a problem writing
    \usepackage[charter]{mathdesign}% set maths fonts
    \setmainfont{Charis SIL}% set text font
unless I'm mistaken.

Are you sure this works? If so, it's a fluke, and might not work in the 
future. Font features should be activated with ItalicFeatures={}, and 
so on.
