I want a border(like a frame) around my xsl-region-body on every page of my document.

Section 6.4.3 states that border-width for the body region (and all other regions) must be 0.

A body background image of a box should give you what you want. You cannot use a bordered block-container because flow in a block-container doesn't continue to subsequent pages.

What I want is a fixed (frame)-border that wraps my region-body (where do I set these values?) and doesn't change in size, no matter what comes.

With XSL 1.0 you'll have to mimic it with a background or use a vendor extension that supports borders on regions.

I hope this helps.
