If this is only a single page, or even every page, you can do this 
with a flow map of three rectangular body regions:  left, lower and 
right.  The map flows a given content flow to the three body regions 
in sequence.

See:  http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/REC-xsl11-20061205/#fo_flow-map

What you cannot do, however, is have a different background for text 
in those three regions.  The *region* background can be of different 
colours, but you can't have the text background be different colours 
because you don't know when the text flows from the lower box to the 
right-hand box.

I hope this helps.
