Just to be complete, it does happen that properties get in the way.
In some portable code, I use this:
;; Protect string comparisons from text properties if possible.
(symbol-function (if (fboundp 'buffer-substring-no-properties)
(if (fboundp 'match-string-no-properties)
(fset 'po-match-string (symbol-function 'match-string-no-properties))
(defun po-match-string (number)
"Return string of text matched by last search."
(po-buffer-substring (match-beginning number) (match-end number)))))
