Section 3.2.6.1 says:

   The KDF is a keyed hash function with key "Key" and operating on
   input "Label | Msg".  The convention followed herein is that
   concatenation is denoted by |, FLOOR denotes the floor function, and
   [x...y] denotes bytes x through y.

It should say:

   The KDF is a keyed hash function with key "Key" and operating on
   input "Label | Msg".  The convention followed herein is that
   concatenation is denoted by |, CEIL denotes the ceiling function,
   and [x...y] denotes bytes x through y.

Notes:

The 'FLOOR' function is used where the 'CEILING' or 'CEIL' function is needed, to properly set the repetition count for partitioning a message into fixed-size blocks. The same error occurs in the code block at the end of Section 3.2.6.1.
