### space between footnote mark and text

Hello,

could somebody please help me to get the following formatting for
footnotes (as required by the publisher):

1. The footnote text should start at a fixed place relative to the
left margin (equivalent to inserting a tab in MS Word). Thus the space
following the number 10 should be smaller than the space following 9
so that the text starts at the same place.

2. The footnote mark should start from the left margin (no indent).

3. The second line of the footnote text should also start from the left margin.

I tried \usepackage[flushmargin]{footmisc}. It gets #1 and #3, not #2.
Also tried \usepackage[hang]{footmisc}. It gets #1&2, but not #3. The same for \usepackage[flushmargin,hang]{footmisc}.

The document class is article. Thanks.

I really can't tell why this behaviour, sorry.
