[OS X TeX] Footnote formatting

This is not strictly an OS X question, for which I apologise.

When I format the file of an article in LaTeX using article.cls, the 
footnotes protude both right and left  beyond the margins of the body 
text. If I format the same file using report.cls, the footnotes have 
the same margins as the body text.

I would like to modify article,cls formatting so that the footnotes and 
the body text have the same margins. I haven't been able to find any 
references to this difference in any LaTeX documentation (which 
probably means I'm not looking in the right places). The difference 
seems to lie in a specification of narrower body text in article.cls, 
but I can't locate the relevant variable. Can anyone tell me how to 
make this modification?
