sorry I did not get to respond sooner. I am attaching my trivial change. However it 
took me long to discover what exactly to change.

It fixes compatibility problem with footnotes in Microsoft Word (.doc) documents. 
Fix removes indentation between footnote number and footnote text. But, it means 
footnotes in all other documents will be displayed incorrectly. I tried to think 
about some universal solution but I have not come up with any. Imported Word 
documents may become .odt documents upon saving. The change is also necessary to be 
able to have a footnote number e.g. 1) where the number is in superscript and ) 
symbol manually added in normal script.

At least what could be done is to add a new compatibility option to source code and 
to the UI.
