What are people's favorite methods of showing a void while giving Blackwood responses?

This is how I play it (I think):

5NT = even nr of keycards with a useful void (2 or 4, with 0 don't show your void)
5X = odd nr of keycards with void X
5 of the trump suit = odd nr of keycards with a useful void higher than the trump suit

This sometimes might get you too high, but the method I've seen most often in print is:

6 of your void = 1 ace and a void (or 1 or 4 keycards and a void in that suit)
6 of your suit = 1 ace and a void in a suit higher than your trump suit (or 1 or 4 keycards and a void higher than your suit)
5NT = 2 aces (keycards) and a void
with 0 or 3, you don't show your void
I tend to lead fourth best - as opposed to the best suit, the second best suit, or the third best suit for our side
