Hello,

Thanks for the response. Unfortunately this doesn't work for me - there
is no visible effect. In fact, I've tried this before. The hspace seems
to affect the paragraph text only i.e if I put:

\renewcommand\footnoterule{%
\kern-\p@
\hspace*{2in} aaa \hrule \@width .1\columnwidth
\kern .6\p@}

then it indents the "aaa" text, but still doesn't indent the rule.

On the other hand I have already received a working solution (as far as
I can tell it was sent to the private address only so I cannot forward
it to the group myself).

Thanks all who took time to try to help.
