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:

enter image description here

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

here is my complete code:

(JS Fiddle available)

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN">
<html>
<head>
    <title>test</title>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" Content="text/html;charset=UTF-8">
    <style type="text/css">
        *{
            margin: 0;
            padding: 0;
        }
        html,body{
            width:100%;
            margin:0;
            padding:0;
        }
        .container{
            display:table;
            width:100%;
            border-collapse:separate;
        }
        .col{
            display:table-cell;
        }
        .side-1{
            width:200px;
            background: #efefef;
        }
        .side-2{
            width:200px;
            background: #f8f8f8;
        }
        .content{

        }
        #header,#footer{

Trouble with a simple display:table layout

Salam (means hello) :)

I have the following simple layout, the problem is that adding content to right div makes content on left one come down:

JS Fiddle

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <style>
        .parent{
            width:800px;
            height:100px;
            display: inline-table;
            border: 1px solid #e8e8e8;
            background: #fcfcfc;
        }
        .parent .right{
            width:90px;
            display:table-cell;
            padding-top: 10px;
            text-align: center;
            background: #f5f5f5;
            color:#666666;
        }
        .parent .left{
            width:710px;
            display:table-cell;
            padding-top: 0px;
        }
    </style>
</head>
<body>
<div class="parent">
    <div class="left">
        This cell has padding-top:0px
    </div>
    <div class="right">
        <img src="images/icon.png">
        <br>some text
