Puttin' on the foil
evtish, my right foot goes out to the side as you describe. Not sure why or how, but it is the weak link in my running form: my injuries always begin in the right leg.
In a decade-plus of running, I haven't been able to get it to straighten out, and I have spent time really trying to fix it and then time where I just gave up and let it go. Both strategies seemed to have similar results. I think the question that may guide you to some array of answers/strategies is along these lines:
Do I have any tight muscles, weaknesses, or other sorts of imbalances elsewhere that lead to this problem or are a result of this problem?
But given your ten plus years experience with this, I'm now unsure that this is going to "fix" any of my feet/knee issues long term.
