Not sure if this is a bug or not, but . . .

I happen to notice to$() and toJQuery both with with nodes() but not with node().

That seems to be correct according to here: https://datatables.net/reference/api/toJQuery()

However it seems odd that to$() and toJQuery wouldn't work with a single node as well.

    APIs like rows().nodes() and cells().nodes() return an API instance along with the results. So you can chain to$() or toJquery().

    The row().node() and cell().node() return just the node without the API instance so chaining won't work. You can put these in a jQuery object ($()) to use jQuery methods.

    Thanks, Kevin -- you're right, it hasn't stopped me because I typically use $() on the node(s) anyway.

    It just seems inconsistent from rows().nodes() and additionally the description is essentially the same for both: "Get the row TR node(s) for the selected row(s)."

    Anyway, I wanted to make sure it was intentional design decision and not an oversight!
