I'm sure this will be one of several messages saying the same, but I think 
your problem is here:

I don't see why you assume the non-supporting foot is flat - I'd always 
assumed that saying to put the 'toe' or 'heel' of one foot near the other 
means the toe (only) touches or hits the ground, or the heel (only) 
touches or hits the ground. I agree the pictures are a bit obscure, but 
they seem consistent with the idea that marque pied is touching the toe 
to the ground, and marque talon is touching the heel.
