          I'm not sure if the On Demand Calender behaves the same as the normal calendar, but I have done something way back in Siebel 7.x.
          I created a calculated field and would render the text with an IIF statement and add the HTML color commands.
          You have to be careful picking the colors, as the text can be become hard to read.

          I never got around changing the background color, only the color of the text itself.

              From the top of my head, something like this.

              IIF([Priority]="High", "<RED>" + [Description] + "</RED>", IIF([Priority]="Medium", <YELLOW>" + [Description] + "</YELLOW>", <GREEN>" + [Description] + "</GREEN>"))

              But I vaguely remember you could assign colors to fields in the Calendar, so I think I did something else.

              I think I created calculated fields where only one would have text depending on the Priority.
              So let's say I created 3 calculated fields and added them all three to the calendar.
              Only fields that contain text will show up.

              Calculated Field Description Red: IIF([Priority]="High", [Description], "")
              Calculated Field Description Yellow: IIF([Priority]="Medium", [Description], "")
              Calculated Field Description Green: IIF([Priority]="Low", [Description], "")

              But I never worked with On Demand Calendar, so you have to check what works best for you.

              And it looks like you have more control in Siebel 8 (again, I never worked with On Demand, so you have to check yourself).
