<?php $_links = $this->getLinks(); ?>
<?php $_currentUrl = Mage::helper('core/url')->getCurrentUrl(); ?>
<?php if(count($_links)>0): ?>
<ul class="links"<?php if($this->getName()): ?> id="<?php echo $this->getName() ?>"<?php endif;?>>
    <?php foreach($_links as $_link): ?>
        <?php if ($_link instanceof Mage_Core_Block_Abstract):?>
            <?php echo $_link->toHtml() ?>
        <?php else: ?>
                $pageLink = $_link->getUrl();
                $pageUri = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
                $activeClass = false;
                switch (true){
                    case strpos($pageLink,'/customer/account/login') !== false:
                        $activeID = "top-login";
                        if (strstr($pageUri,'/customer/account/login')) {
                            $activeClass = true;
                    case strpos($pageLink,'/customer/account/logout') !== false:
                        $activeID = "top-logout";                   
                    case strpos($pageLink,'/customer/account/') !== false:
                        $activeID = "top-account";
                        if ((strstr($pageUri,'/customer/') && strstr($pageUri,'/customer/account/login')===false && strstr($pageUri,'/customer/account/logoutSuccess/')===false) || strstr($pageUri,'/sales/order/history/') || strstr($pageUri,'/sales/billing_agreement/') || strstr($pageUri,'/sales/recurring_profile/') || strstr($pageUri,'/oauth/customer_token/') || strstr($pageUri,'/newsletter/manage/')) {
                            $activeClass = true;
                    case strpos($pageLink,'/checkout/cart/') !== false:
                        $activeID = "top-cart";
                        if (strstr($pageUri,'/checkout/cart/')) {
                            $activeClass = true;
                    case strpos($pageLink,'/checkout/') !== false:
                        $activeID = "top-checkout";
                        if (strstr($pageUri,'/checkout/') && strstr($pageUri,'/checkout/cart/')===false) {
                            $activeClass = true;
                        $activeID = "";
                        $activeClass = false;
            <li id="<?php echo $activeID; ?>" class="<?php echo ($activeClass ? 'active' : ''); ?> <?php echo $_link->getLiParams() ?>"><?php echo $_link->getBeforeText() ?>
                <div class="medium metro rounded btn">
                    <a href="<?php echo $_link->getUrl() ?>" title="<?php echo $_link->getTitle() ?>" <?php echo $_link->getAParams() ?>><?php echo $_link->getLabel() ?></a><?php echo $_link->getAfterText() ?>
        <?php endif;?>
    <?php endforeach; ?>
<?php endif; ?>

With this code you can add a class to the default top links when the user is on one of those pages. For example if the user is on My Cart then this will add the class 'top-cart' and 'active' class for that page.

In addition, you can also add additional class to "wishlist" links, by adding below code to your layout local.xml file.

 <?xml version="1.0"?>
<layout version="0.1.0">
<reference name="wishlist_link">
    <action method="setAParams">
