    Indentation is based on ancestral inheritance during refinement ... and in
    the formatting object tree the ancestor of your footnote is indented in
    order to process the list item.

    Change it to read:

       <fo:footnote-body start-indent="0pt">

    in order to reset your indent to the start edge of the page for the body of
    the footnote. With this, all of your constructs in your body of your
    footnote will inherit the start-indent= here, instead of the start-indent=
    in your list item.

    Coincidentally, I explicitly have this particular placement of a footnote
    in the footnote exercise in my XSL-FO class in order to "trip up" my
    students and have them realize the effect of inheritance *from the
    formatting object tree" during refinement, and not as many assume from the
    placement of objects in the area tree.

    I hope this helps.
