Post ideal or idle

can both these words can be same ? idle is to doing nothing at all, while ideal means to be the best and suitable.So i believe they are opposite in great sense
actually these are homophones i.e. words having same pronunciation but different meanings while Homographs are those words which have same spellings but different meaning

Yes, you are right both these words have different meaning idle means not working or active, doing nothing. ideal means a conception of something in its perfection.
