How to set superscript footnote mark in the text body but normalsized in the foot?

I cannot find a way to have footnotes with no superscript number in the footnotes, but superscript in the text and with an indent. If I use a macro like

    \parindent 1em% 



I get the result that the numbers are not superscript, but there is no way to have the indent, even if I add something like that to the preamble:


If I use this last command and the following macro

    \renewcommand\@makefnmark{{{\normalfont\@thefnmark}}.\ }%

I get both the indent and the non-superscript number, but then the superscript is absent also in the main text.

(I am using the document class book, but could switch to memoir, if it would help.)

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You can use the koma-script classes and set your footnotes with

\deffootnote[mark width]{indent}{parindent}{definition}

See p. 77-78 of the koma-script documentation.

The question link in my comment above inludes a compilable example using KOMA-script. – lockstep Oct 24 '12 at 18:30
