CSS Flexible Box Layout Module Level 1

The specification describes a CSS box model optimized for user interface design. In the flex layout model, the children of a flex container can be laid out in any direction, and can “flex” their sizes, either growing to fill unused space or shrinking to avoid overflowing the parent. Both horizontal and vertical alignment of the children can be easily manipulated. Nesting of these boxes (horizontal inside vertical, or vertical inside horizontal) can be used to build layouts in two dimensions. CSS is a language for describing the rendering of structured documents (such as HTML and XML) on screen, on paper, in speech, etc.

display:table & display:table-cell not working in IE9

Salam (means Hello) :)

I'm trying to implement a 3 column layout for my web page using display:table & display:table-cell. It works fine in firefox and chrome, and I know that this feature should be supported in IE 9, but all I achieved so far is no more than this screenshot:

how can I get this to work in IE 8+ ?

here is my complete code:
