I think this would work. For magento 1 anyway.

In your layout file:

<reference name="wishlist_link">
    <action method="setAParams">
        <param><![CDATA[class="fa fa-icon"]]></param>
  • OP's magento is 1 not 2. Dec 20, 2016 at 12:33
  • Apologies i thought it was 2. I have altered for mage 1

<ul class="submenu-link">
