Breakpoint table v. 11: a mistake in the Staphylococcus spp tab.

There is a mistake in the EUCAST breakpoint table v 11.0 where, in the Staphylococcus spp tab, the fluroquinolone section, the footnote C should read:  Isolates categorised as susceptible to norfloxacin can be reported susceptible (S) to moxifloxacin and "susceptible increased exposure" (I) to ciprofloxacin and levofloxacin. Isolates non-wild type to norfloxacin should be tested for susceptibility to individual agents.
