You can get a fixed page border using fop 0.93 using this approach, which Eliot suggested. As he pointed out, you will not be able to float the bottom border up to the bottom edge of a short column set

The writing mode on the sidebars was the tricky part for me. Then it's just a matter of adjusting the extents and margins to match up.

<fo:simple-page-master master-name="page-master" page-height="8.5in" page-width="11in"
margin-top="0.2in" >
<fo:region-body region-name="normal"
margin-top="1.2in" margin-bottom="0.25in"
margin-right="0.25in" />
<fo:region-before region-name="header" extent="1.15in"/>
<fo:region-after region-name="footer" extent="0.2in"/>
<fo:region-start region-name="left-sidebar" extent="0.2in" writing-mode="tb-rl"/>
<fo:region-end region-name="right-sidebar" extent="0.2in" writing-mode="tb-rl"/>
<fo:page-sequence master-reference="page-master">
<!-- there are several ways to implement top border (not shown) -->
<fo:static-content flow-name="footer">
<fo:block border-top="1pt solid black">&#160;</fo:block>
<fo:static-content flow-name="left-sidebar">
<fo:block border-top="1pt solid black" margin-left="0.15in" margin-right="0.2in">&#160;</fo:block>
<fo:static-content flow-name="right-sidebar">
<fo:block border-bottom="1pt solid black" margin-left="0.15in" margin-right="0.2in">&#160;</fo:block>
<!-- more of what you want -->
By the looks of it, Ken's suggestion looks easier.
