The wording uses both "encoding scheme" and "encoding",
which might be misconstrued to be different things.

Please pick a term and use it consistently.

Regarding the uses of "determination"; this word (despite the
considerable effort on clarifications around it) still feels
that the compiler determines something (possibly by magic), but
in reality it is the user that conveys an (out-of-band) assertion
on the encoding of the source file. It feels English ought to
have a word or phrase that fits better than "determination".

Furthermore, agreed with Hubert's suggestions.
