SUMMARY:  Table title continuation variable cannot be used in a table title
ISSUE:  Attempting to insert a Table Continuation variable in a table title results in the following error message ..

    To insert a table variable, put the insertion point in a table's title, heading, or footing.

There seems to be no way to use this feature.
SOLUTION:  In the current structure application (FM8 DITA and DITA-FMx) a table title is not really a "table title" object so you are unable to insert a Table Continuation variable. This is definitely a problem, and will hopefully be fixed in a future update.
