If null means an empty string (e.g. '') or the Python value None, the
first line should be:

<dtml-if "not SerialNumber">nbsp;

or perhaps (empty string only)

<dtml-if "SerialNumber == '' ">nbsp;

It really helps to remember that anything inside double quotes gets
evaluated as a Python expression.  You were initially trying to assign the
value of null (which may have not actually existed) to SerialNumber.
