Definition. A topological space $X$ has the Fixed Point Property (FPP) if every continuous self-map $X\to X$ has a fixed point.
Question. If $X$ and $Y$ are homotopy-equivalent compact metrizable spaces and $X$ has the FPP, does it follow that $Y$ also has FPP? Another way to put it: Can one force a fixed point for a self-map of a compact by a "non-homological" argument?
I do not know an answer to this even for finite simplicial complexes, but my primary interest is in locally connected finite-dimensional compacts.
