Hi Laura & John,

HDM is another very good style, but if you wish to look at the HOT 
Validate style (I frequently switch between 3 or 4 different styles 
depending on what I am currently doing), the process is quite simple for 
the initial setup, and even easier to switch once you have installed it.

Go to JOSM preferences (you may need to be in Expert mode),
3rd icon down for Map projection & data interpretation,
Tab for Map Paint styles,
Click on the + symbol far right, and in the two boxes that appear enter

Make sure there is a tick in the box for 'active'

You may have to restart JOSM - not sure on that one.

There is more info at https://josm.openstreetmap.de/wiki/Styles
& https://github.com/MarkCupitt/HOT-Osm-Validation

Once you have installed a paint style, & loaded some OSM data, you can 
switch between the paint styles by clicking on 'view' and 'map paint 

Hope this helps
