I want a graphic on a fixed place on the page and the multi-column text
floating around that grafix. Is that possible?

With XSL-FO 1.1, yes. In XSL-FO 1.0 there is no way I know of to accomplish your requirement.

If yes, how?

Using multiple body regions whose dimensions and locations take the columns around your image, and then creating a flow map that pours your content sequentially into each of the body regions.

I use fop 0.93, if that matters.

I don't know the features of fop 0.93 but if it doesn't support XSL-FO 1.1 with multiple body regions and flow maps, then I suppose it matters quite a bit.

I hope this helps.
