Belay my last unless you are talking about a single page. This suggestion sucks wind otherwise.
If you really desperately needed that border you could: 1) create a background-image that provided it for you (SVG?); OR 2) do some stuff in the 4 outside regions, essentially coming back to the use of region-filling (or close - you don't want to extend into the regions and precedence is not a solution either) block-containers with borders.

You cannot put a border on a region directly, since in XSL 1.0 the border-width on regions is forced to "0". The workaround would be to fill up the region with a block-container, and put the border on it. But then you may as well apply the background to that instead.

So far I've got the 1cm margin set up using the simple-page-master but I can't figure out how to make the region-body have a background color or border. Here's my layout-master-set so far: <fo:layout-master-set> <fo:simple-page-master master-name="main" page-height="29.7cm" page-width="21cm" margin-top="1cm" margin-bottom="1cm" margin-left="1cm" margin-right="1cm"> <fo:region-body /> </fo:simple-page-master> </fo:layout-master-set> Does anyone have any suggestions?
