Or, replace 'autodetection' with 'default to' or 'fallback to'  - 'fallback to'
gives me myself more meaning, but 'default to' might be more computer-ishy:

]] By relying on XML's fallback to the UTF-8 encoding, in combination with
   the HTML <meta charset="UTF-8"/> encoding declaration. [[

Eventually

]] By relying on UTF-8 as the encoding default of XML, in combination with
   the HTML <meta charset="UTF-8"/> encoding declaration. [[

Or something like that. English is funny. :)
