I'm using XeLaTeX with fancyhdr. I need to have the footer wider than \textwidth. This is an intentional effect. The problem is that the footer is several lines long, so I want them to appear as a single paragraph, wider than \textwidth. I'm not sure how best to do that.

It doesn't look great, and you'll probably have to increase how much space the footer is allowed to take up, but you get the picture...
