XF 2.1 BB Code: How to add FA icon to editor?

I consulted the XF manual, but unfortunately it only says I can, but not how.

I have selected the Font Awesome option and in the box I have variously tried:
<i class="fal fa-acorn"></i>

None give me an icon in the editor. What am I overlooking?

for dropdown menus its fa-acorn
regular buttons should be just acorn

i noticed a bug about the brand set, but there is a workaround if its a problem like that...
