I have this d3d application that renders a simple terrain using the wireframe fill mode, and then I wanted to add som text for displaying data to render text I use textured tringlestrips so I had to change many render states when rendering the text but I figured as long as I changed every one back it wouldn''t be any problem but after I call the IDirect3DDevice8::SetTexture to set my font texture the terrain gets all screwed up and looks more like a collection of blinking dots do I have to reset the texture or something?

You need to do

DXDisplay->SetTexture( 0, NULL);

This sets DX to use no texture, otherwise your wireframe mesh will be textured with the font texture (last texture set). Which is why it looks all weird!
