Thank you for your report.

I believe this is a known problem with the Windows port of Emacs 20.3,
it is solved in later versions.

Emacs 20.3 doesn't support DOS codepages.  In Emacs 20.4 or later, you
can type "C-x RET c cp850 RET" before invoking "M-x lpr-buffer", and
then Emacs will do the conversion for you.
