# [OS X TeX] pslatex body text width vs. footnote text width

Hi all,

I'm formatting a book that requires very specific margin settings and Times font, so I'm using geometry (for the margins) and pslatex (for the font). The following minimal working example demonstrates the problem: the footnote text is ever so slightly wider than the body text. Does anyone have any suggestions (including plain old hacks) for reducing the width of the footnote text to match that of the body? I've done my best to scour the web for ideas but nothing has emerged.

\documentclass[10pt,b5paper]{book}

\usepackage{pslatex}
\usepackage[OT1]{fontenc}

\usepackage[vcentering,dvips]{geometry}
\geometry{papersize={156mm,234mm},total={114mm,196mm}}

\begin{document}

\vspace*{\fill}
This line demonstrates the length of a line of text in this document. That's all it does, really. Truly. Now check out the width of a footnote line.\footnote{It's ever so slighly longer than the line of text above. Do you see it? If not, look more closely. Or even more closely.}

\end{document}
