input voltage

Hi,

To limit the input voltage, I put 10k ohm series register and two diodes before the input of AD8542.
Voltage at the input pin is limited between -0.7V and +5.7V.
Does +5.7V input voltage cause damage to AD8542 which operates with Vs=+5.0V ?
How about -0.7V input voltage ?
Data sheet tells Absolute maximun rating of input is 0V to Vs.
But Figure 31. No Phase Reversal shows the example that input voltage goes higher than Vs and lower than GND.
Could you give me advice ?
Thank you.
