My version:

empty(node() except (Person[1]|text()[not(normalize-space())]))

I may be misinterpreting your requirement, but based on my initial
read, I'd go with something like the following, which should work with
any version of XPath/XSLT.  It is written to be evaluated in the
context of<author>.

count(Person) = 1 and not(text()[normalize-space(.)])

Hi Folks,

Would you please recommend an XPath expression which ensures that the content of<author> is optional whitespace,<Person>, optional whitespace, and nothing else:

            <name>Simon L. Peyton Jones</name>

The result of the XPath expression is true if the content is as desired and false otherwise. The XPath should return true for the above example and false for the below example:

       The person is:
            <name>Simon L. Peyton Jones</name>
