What is a  Style Switch?
 
Are you thinking of the SS13A Stick A Switch?
http://www.x10.com/automation/x10_ss13a.htm

It is a RF device that sends commands like other X10 remotes to a transceiver.
TM751 and RR501. Controllers like a CM15A or Security Console.
 
The transceiver converts the RF commands to a power line signal. That controls X10 modules on the addresses it is set to.
Pushing a button on it will not do anything except flash the RED LED, if its RF signal is not received by a transceiver and sent to a properly addressed module over the power lines.

Give us the correct name, the crystal ball isn't working. Are you asking about the X10 Pro "Decora style",  "slave"  switch in a 3-way circuit, which does have a non functioning LED?

http://www.x10pro.com/pro/pdf/xpss.pdf

If so, it is the second switch in a X10 3-way lighting circuit. You can not use a standard 3-way switch for the second switch, nor will the XPSS slave switch function in a circuit without the master XPD3 (incandescent bulb only-dimable) or XPS3 (flourescent, LED, etc. - non dimable).
