When working with forms, you often want to interact directly with the form elements - for example, listening for a change event to take some action on update. This method will return the DOM element for the requested field, allowing standard jQuery / DOM manipulation of the field.

Note that the field().node() method introduced in Editor 1.3 provides the same functionality as this method for a single field, although this method extends that ability by being able to operate on multiple fields at the same time.
