[XeTeX] Problem with subscripted digits, space out

I need to use the subscripted digits in the range U+2080 through
U+2089. I've patched in a suitable font, and in general it works fine.
However, I have two problems (the first one is more a misfortune than a
1. Typewriter doesn't seem to support those. Pity... but I can find
another font I suppose (suggestions, anyone?)
2. More significant: when I try to space these out using \so (from
soul), the subscripted digit gets lost.
XeLaTeX input below.
Is there another approach to spacing out I could use, or is there some
parameter setting I'm not aware of?

\setromanfont [Ligatures={Common}]{Charis SIL}
 u\\             % `u' followed by U+0286 (subscript 6)
 \texttt{u}\\ % ditto, typewriter
 \so{u}\\     % ditto, spaced out
