Epson LX-300, how to use it with cups?

imagine... a site which only have text, ok, it have a table, but no border. I want to print it on a Epson LX-300. I did not found any driver on

- When i put raw driver and try to print from this site, it prints lotssssss of programming lines ().

- When i put 9-pin series or 24-pin series it works, it really prints what is in the display but the quality is HORRIBLE!

- When i still with raw driver and print from console a text-only file, it also prints what is showed in the display.

What would you recommend me to do?
