I think your options are limited.  If you have your newton setup for  
wireless then emailing the document to yourself and printing from your  
PC is probably easiest and the best quality.

I have a mac and use LPR Driver from <http://www.kallisys.com/> and  
print wirelessly through my Mac but the quality (font and size) is not  
as I would like, so I use email.
I am not sure about using this with windows but a google search "lpr  
windows" had several items.  May need to search "CUPS Windows"
Search archives for LPR for set up.

other options
For direct printing you will need serial for one of several Style  
Writer printers, search archives. or
Early HP with IRDA printing. or
Early apple or hp postscript printer with ethernet or serial. or
PrintPack cable and compatible parallel printer.

Good luck
