It is really strange that so many hyphenation points are missing and I
have even noticed wrong hyphenation between b and h in bha. There must
be something wrong in your file. I have just downloaded and installed
Charis SIL and I see all characters are present, thus this is not a
problem of the font. I have not examined the paterns thoroughly but
the number of patterns for each script matches. The patterns contain
rules not to hyphenate in the middle of aspirated consonant, so I do
not understand why bha is hyphenated in your document.
