Um, this is not conditional (although it will probably get what you want, if 
you don't mind always having the <br/> -- HTML will probably ignore it if 
there is other content in your <td>).  For conditional, try something like:

  <xsl:when test="normalize-space(TABLE_TITLE)">
    <xsl:value-of select="TABLE_TITLE"/>

If TABLE_TITLE can have anything other than just plain text, and you want to 
include that in the test and the output, then you might be better off with 
this (although the above will probably be fine):

  <xsl:when test="TABLE_TITLE/* or TABLE_TITLE//text()[normalize-space(.)]">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="TABLE_TITLE"/>
